The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath has inaugurated an integrated Emergency Control Centre at Shastri Bhawan here to provide expeditious relief to people, ranging from information about anti-COVID hospitals and quarantine centres to the food to the poor and hungry on Monday.
CM Yogi Adityanath stated that the control room will play an important role in running an anti-corona campaign in the state without any discrimination and would help authorities provide essential services and the state’s welfare scheme benefits to needy persons. This will act as a backbone for relief works. Instructions have been issued to all district magistrates to set up similar control rooms and appoint nodal officers to man them their respective districts in 24 hours.
UP CM has also launched ‘Geo-Spatial based Mobile Application and Geo-portal for Community Kitchen and Shelter Homes’ for the ease of stranded persons.
It is worth mentioning that this integrated emergency control centre will soon be linked to important telephone service numbers like 112, 1076, 1090, 108 and 102 for better coordination.
Additional Chief Secretary Finance Renuka Kumar further said that this will also work as a MIS portal and Dashboard for better integration to combat pandemic.
