In order to provide emergency assistance to women, all new mobile phones sold in India will need to have a panic button that enables users to make emergency calls from 2017. Further, in-built GPS navigation will be mandatory for all phones from 2018.
The new rules were announced by India’s telecom ministry to improve safety for women. While the numeric keys 5 and 9 will be used for panic buttons in feature phones, smartphone manufactures will have to introduce a new button or feature to send emergency alerts.
All manufactures, including Apple and Samsung, will have to abide by the new rules and introduce this software updates for phones sold in India.
