About helpline ‘112’:
The Emergency Response Support System (ERSS) envisages a single pan-India emergency number ‘112’ that is internationally recognised to target all types of emergencies.
The helpline, ‘112’ is an integration of police (100), fire (101) and women (1090) helpline numbers and the project is being implemented under the central government’s Nirbhaya Fund (2012 Delhi gangrape case).
A total of Rs. 321.69 crore has been reserved for this Emergency Response Support System out of which Rs. 278.66 crore has already been given to the States and the UTs from the Nirbhaya Fund.
The Nirbhaya Fund was set up by the central government for projects specifically designed to improve the safety and security of the women.
The single number for emergency services is similar to '911' in the United States.
