News : To ‘Change Face of Policing in UP', CM Checks Out Dial 100
Lucknow, India, Sept 22, 2016 -- Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav said the ambitious flagship project Dial 100 will change the face of policing in Uttar Pradesh. Reviewing the project, CM directed officials to develop a dedicated citizen App which will provide easy access to police for people in distress. The project is slated to be launched on October 2.
It was one of the dream projects of CM Akhilesh Yadav and he has been showing his strong displeasure over the delay in its inauguration. He has even blasted senior officials in public over the delay. On Wednesday, he went for a spot inspection of the project. Inspecting the call command centre of UP government's dream project, which will be housed in a grand complex coming up in Gomtinagar extension, Akhilesh expressed satisfaction over the progress in setting up of the technical aspect of Dial 100 scheme and directed the officials to complete the digitisation work of the state's map which will have extensive location details of rural areas as well.
Addressing senior officials on the occasion, Akhilesh said the project will have a long lasting impact as the scheme will become an integral part of policing in the state. "Anyone in distress will get police help within 10 minutes of calling up the command centre from any part of the state," he said, adding that it will help infuse a sense of security among the people of the state.
Advisor to state home department Venkat Changavalli complimented the chief minister for his far-sightedness and resolve to take out to shape such a massive project. "This will be a first of its kind facility to be implemented on such a grand scale in the country," he said.
Chief secretary Rahul Bhatnagar along with director general of police Javeed Ahmed, additional DG (Law and Order) Daljeet Chaudhary and ADGB traffic Anil Agarwal were among those present along with other senior officials of the state home and police department.
The CM had laid the foundation stone for the Dial-100 project HQ in Lucknow in December last year. Apart from the command centre at the project headquarters, two sub-centres would be established in Agra and Varanasi to serve as alternative to the Lucknow centre in case of any technical snag at the Lucknow's command office.
Under the project, in case of emergency, a person can communicate with the Dial 100 call centre through telephone, SMS or any other communication method and in turn will receive immediate relief and help. Procurement of as many as 4,800 vehicles is underway which will spread across all 75 districts of the state.
