Currently available only in Hindi and English but with eight more languages to be added, the number 1800 111 363 can be called toll-free 24 hours a day from any phone in India.

Also, the tourism ministry plans to pass out Welcome Cards with emergency numbers as well as the helpline number to visitors arriving at international airports in India.
