Yadav said Dial 100 should be developed as the fastest, biggest, cheapest, effective and best service.

During the meeting, Changavalli informed Yadav that under the project, 3,200 four-wheelers would be active. All vehicles would be painted in black.

At present, the project’s headquarters at Lucknow’s Shaheed Path is under construction and it has been decided that 100 women personnel would be posted at the call centre.

Two sub-centres would be established in Agra and Varanasi.

Under this project, in case of emergency, a person can communicate with the Dial 100 call centre through phone, texts or any other communication method and in turn will be provided immediate relief and help.

Once the project is launched, 4,800 vehicles would be active in 75 districts of the state, of which 3,200 would be four wheelers and 1,600 two wheelers. All these vehicles would be equipped with GPS.

The response time under dial 100 has been fixed as ten minutes for two-wheelers in urban areas and 15 minutes for four wheelers. While in rural areas the response time for four wheelers has been mandated as 20 minutes.
