Though now it has been announced by the government of India that now there will be a single emergency number which will be 112. This initiative has been approved by the inter-ministerial telecom commission of India. The number will start working within a few months time once the Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar approves it.
After this, the citizens of the country will only have to dial one single number in case of emergencies. The proposal for the single emergency number was proposed long back but due to some difficulties, it was postponed.
Features of single emergency number
- The call on this number can be made even when the phone is not in the coverage area. This is a very big benefit of this emergency number.
- The service will be available in Hindi, English and other local languages. It will be operated in all the states in a call-center of kind set-up.
- The number is accessible to each citizen of the country. The number can de dialed even if there is no balance on the phone. Even if the outgoing facility is barred then also the emergency number can be dialed.
- One can also send SMS to the national emergency number. Also when the person will make the call his/her location will be tracked immediately automatically and will be given to the help centre nearby, for the convenience of the caller.
