Mr Yadav laid the foundation at the Gomtinagar Extension, the building will house the call centre which will have 4,800 police vehicles at its disposal across the state to reach out to any SOS call on dial 100 within 10 to 15 minutes.
Several ministers and senior officials were present in the function while state DGP Jagmohan Yadav welcomed the guests.
The state cabinet had already given its nod to the project yesterday.
Under this project, any person can contact the headquarters of Dial 100 through telephone, mobile,SMS and any other way 24X7. All the calls would be recorded and later the case will be closed only if the complainant is satisfied.
Of the total 4800 vehicles to be deployed in the project, 1600 would be two-wheelers and rest four-wheelers besides all of them would be equipped with latest gadgets.
The state government has allotted 8 acres of land for the facility (plot number 7/13) near Shaheed Path for the building which, apart from call center, will also house a training Centre for the personnel who will be trained for attending calls and dealing with emergency situations in terms of dispatching police and emergency assistance.
With 300 communication officers to receive distress calls from all over the state and 200 dispatch officers to rush police help, the country's largest centralised 'Dial 100' police control call center will also extend help at time of medical emergencies.
