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.
