DIAL 100 app for UP
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday launched the mobile application Dial 100 and unveiled the logo of the service which is to be started soon. The Dial 100 service, government officials claim, would ensure that police reach the crime scene in 15 minutes in both rural and urban areas.
For implementing the new technology in large scale, hundreds of new mobiles and four wheelers are being provided to the state police, by the State government.
On the occasion, Yadav said the opposition's criticism of law and order in the state was biased and asked if they had any better system than Dial 100 to offer. He also claimed that now other states were also emulating the Dial 100 model of Uttar Pradesh Police.
