National Emergency Response System (NERS)

Under this system, it is proposed to set up Emergency Response Centres in all States/UTs with support in the form of hardware/ software including software solutions and training. The NERS system was proposed in the aftermath of the 2012 Nirbhaya rape case. NERS will be successfully implemented once States/UTs establish their emergency response centres. Existing separate emergency numbers such as 100 for police, 101 for fire force and 102 for ambulance will be integrated into just one number 112 under NERS.
