i wish 100 was uniform across the country. are there even guidelines on what kind of complaints that are supposed to be dealing with.
i was literally shocked when recently dad called 100 number to get information on where to send a freaking RTI to gurgaon police since their website had shit information on the same. the lady on the other side tried hard to find info and in the end suggested we find address of police headquarter on google and take address from there. true story.
100 number doesn't even connect always. To register complaint I had to call 4-5 times then got a call from beat constable who said to wait 30 mins then after an hour no one came so I called again 100 it won't connect I gave up
That was my first experience to call 100 don't have high hopes if you are really in an emergency.
my only experience with emergency services is when i had to call fire brigade many years ago when i had a fire in my 2 room rented house. fire brigade took like 20 minutes to arrive. by that time, we had put out the fire ourselves.
though i heard that a fire in local market saw very fast response time of under 10 minutes just a few days ago. not bad considering the state of traffic in this city.
100 se umeed thodi kam hai. considering the attitude of most cops i see around here. pcr van people are never wearing seatbelts (started keeping an eye on them after the new rules were implemented). never seen them target bullet owners with silencers that act like speakers. there are two three assholes in my area who make trips around market area during evening time. the silencer is so loud that my ears go into temporary shock even when i am like 50 meters away from them. i am pretty sure i have a very mild case of tinnitus and these incidents just amplify it for a few hours.
Its very rare to find a police officer who would do they duty. They will always try to convince you to not register a formal complain.
I have witnessed myself they would do nothing just watch and do nothing to stop people from killing each other, only after either bystanders have stopped fight or someone is dead they will come take you to police station get their bribe and release you depending upon your crime.
