India to Pilot Countrywide “911” System

Currently, each state and city in India has its own emergency response. Moreoever, each has a separate phone number for fire, ambulance and other services. Officials are preparing for a pilot program in Hyderabad in December that will unite all emergency services and make them accessible via a single number on all wired and wireless networks: 100. The effort is led by the country's Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D), under the ministry of home affairs (MHA). The vision is a nationwide system by 2014 with an RFP later in the coming months.

Also noteworthy is the plan to unite the project with crime tracking system.

This project will ultimately be merged with the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS), which entitles fitting all mobile patrol vehicles and PCR vans with geographical information systems (GIS).
