As per the civic administration, it had started the help centre with five lines, which were then increased to 10 after more calls started coming in. The number of lines were further increased to 15 in the peak period. On an average, 700 to 800 calls were received per day at the centre. The number then reduced to 200 as the number of positive cases reduced. Now, the helpline receives 50 calls on an average.
According to the PMC officials, the civic body had decided to introduce the call recording feature at the call centres of Covid bed management. The decision was taken after many citizens raised complaints of not getting proper information about the availability of beds.
A civic official said the Bombay high court too had raised questions on the functioning of the centres a few months. The court, while hearing the matter regarding call centres and other facilities of PMC, had directed one of the advocates to give a call on the Covid helpline and check the hospital beds’ availability. The staff member, who had answered, didn’t give the information properly, following which the civic body took action against her, the official added.
