Mumbai: Loud music to traffic, 100 has its plate full

The control room of Mumbai police received nearly 1.6 crore calls from citizens last year, with complaints ranging from noise pollution to parking issues to troubles created by drunks and drug users. That’s a 120 per cent jump from the calls recorded in 2016.

The rise in the number of calls to 100 – the police control room – is a sign of growing awareness and trust in the force, said officers. The city police shared the data with activist Shakeel Ahmad in response to his application under the Right to Information Act.
