112 emergency app.

India has become one of the most unsafe country for women and children. Every daughter of India is scared and many Indians are ashamed to be a part of this nation. Now, we can’t just remove this fear of safety from people’s heart altogether but we can help to contribute in erasing it, bit by bit.

For helping and safe keeping of people, the government of India has created an app named 112 India. It’s India’s all-in-one emergency helpline which was launched by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in 16 States and Union Territories.

The 112 emergency helpline number would provide immediate assistance to services like police (100), fire (101), health (108), Women’s safety (1090) and child protection.

It has been developed in the following 16 States and Union Territories but will gradually be developed in other states as well :

  • Andhra Pradesh
  • Uttarakhand
  • Punjab
  • Kerala
  • Madhya Pradesh
  • Rajasthan
  • Uttar Pradesh
  • Telangana
  • Tamil Nadu
  • Gujarat
  • Puducherry
  • Lakshadweep
  • Andaman
  • Dadar and Nagar Haveli
  • Daman and Diu
  • Jammu and Kashmir

112 India’s main purpose is to keep women and children of India safe and sound. To provide them a safe space and a helping hand whenever they are in any kind of danger or in the time of an emergency.

Some special features of this app are:

  • Panic call :

    For smartphones: In any emergency situation, you need to press the power button three times quickly on your smartphones to activate a panic call to the Emergency Response Centre (ERC).

    For normal phones: You need to long press number ‘5’ or ‘9’ to activate a panic call through your normal phones.

  • Emergency complaints can be logged online.

The emergency services can also be accessed online by logging on to the Emergency Response Support System (ERSS) website. On the ERSS website, you can either send an emergency email or send an SOS alert to the Emergency Report Centre (ERC)

  • It provides a special ‘SHOUT’ feature for women and children, which alerts registered volunteers close to the victim for immediate assistance.

Now no father will be scared for his daughter and wife’s safety anymore. No mother will be shedding tears over the deadbody of her daughter. The crime rates in India will finally go down and all the people of India can live in peace, all due to 112 India.
