In Pune, now the helpline number of Police 100, 1091 for women helpline and 1098 for child helpline will be scrapped and only new helpline helpline number '112' will be available.
Pune Police announced a new single emergency helpline number for all the services via its official twitter handle.
Due to the high number of accidents in Pune, city Police have made the emergency helpline number ‘112’ where citizens can call only on a single helpline number for emergency requirements like Police help, women help, child help.
The decision was made to provide joint assistance to the police, ambulances, fire brigade and women's helpline. Within a few seconds after receiving the call the GPS system will track the concerned person who needs help.
Earlier citizens used to face many difficulties when the helpline number was 100, like false information was given by the complainant. Now the citizens or the police will not have to face those difficulties as it will be resolved very fast with the help of new number.
