In an effort to help the senior citizens, the Gujarat Police have planned a toll-free helpline number 1096.

The helpline will begin from January 26, Director General of Police S S Khandwawala said.

He said the helpline will be connected to the Police Control Room (PCR) to extend day-long services to the senior citizens.

"This is a free service that will enable every senior citizen to seek help in all matters. With this number, any query or problems would reach us in minutes. If they require any housekeeping persons, the police will crosscheck the candidates' background, criminal records, among others." said Khandwawala.

He added: "The old people can use this service for emergency health issues, for ambulance services, among others. They will also be able to get police protection in the event of burglaries or any other untoward incident; police help will just be a call away."
