The Indian Army has achieved a major milestone by activating the Military Police help line. The Facility was inaugurated by Army Chief General VK Singh on 19 May 10 during the biannual Army Commanders Conference being held at New Delhi. Common Military help line telephone number 155200 can now be accessed across the Nation to provide assistance to military personnel. The number is available at Mil Police Control Rooms and is instituted to provide immediate assistance and be instrumental in solving and mitigating crisis being faced by military personnel. In addition, it will provide an excellent facility for the civil police and the public to contact the Army Military Police to provide first hand information of any situation where military persons are involved or has potential to affect the military persons.

The telephone number has been allotted in coordination with department of telecommunication and can be accessed locally and from outside the locality by prefixing the STD code of that station. The facility has been activated presently at some of the Metro cities and State Capitals. The telecommunication Authorities have assured full support in extending the Services across the Nation at the earliest.
