The district administration has decided to set up its proposed state-of-the-art police call centre on the campus of BR Ambedkar Multi-speciality Hospital, the only government medical facility in Noida.

On Thursday, the Noida authority identified the space in the hospital to be used to run the high-tech call centre, which will be equipped with world-class policing facilities.

According to officials, the new call centre will be set up on the model, which is into practice in America.

District magistrate MKS Sundaram and chief medical officer RK Garg met with authority officials and gave their go-ahead for the project. The authority had been looking for a suitable place to set up a call centre for the last one month.

"Because of the paucity of land and non-availability of a ready-to-move building in the city, we have decided to set up the call centre in the hospital premises, which has a lot of space," said Sanjeev Saran, chief executive officer (CEO), Noida authority.

The police call centre will deal with all kinds of emergency calls pertaining to fire, theft, molestation, rape, loot and others. Special teams, along with ambulances, will be put on stand-by mode outside the hospital to rush to the spot of crime or accident.

For the purpose, the authority is about to purchase five new ambulances equipped with advanced technology. Besides, three ambulances will be taken from National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) in the first phase.

"If the model becomes successful, we will purchase more ambulances according to the demand in the city. These ambulances can also be used for the hospital patients in emergency cases," said the authority CEO.

On Friday, the authority officials will inspect the space earmarked to establish the call centre and take the project ahead.
