This is one of the biggest emergency police response system in the country, where anybody can seek help through phone, texts or any other communication method and in turn will be provided immediate relief and help maximum in 20 minutes time. The system would boost the law and order situation in the state as police forces would reach the spot of the crime or incident within 20 minutes time. Mr Yadav launched 'UP 100' at its own building on Shahid Path. Later the CM left for Bareilly to inaugurate the same there. Initially, 'UP 100' will start its operations in 11 districts-- Lucknow, Kanpur, Agra, Allahabad, Varanasi, Bareilly, Gorakhpur, Jhansi, Meerut, Moradabad and Rampur. 100 women personnel would be posted at the call centre and two sub-centres would be established in Agra and Varanasi. UP government had provided 4,800 vehicles in 75 districts of the state for the success of 'UP 100', of which 3,200 would be four wheelers and 1,600 two wheelers. All these vehicles would be equipped with GPS. The response time under dial 100 has been fixed as ten minutes for two-wheelers in urban areas and 15 minutes for four wheelers. While in rural areas the response time for four wheelers has been fixed for 20 minutes. The system will ensure police response to emergency situation within 15 minutes in both rural and urban areas. 'UP 100' is meant to take quick action in a fixed minimum time limit by sharing the information received through phone calls with the concerned police station/police post of concerned district and other officers. This system will be monitoring the police action continuously till the problem is solved. The advantage of this ultramodern control room will be easily available to the rural and urban areas and the relief will be made available immediately to the victim concerned.
