The NRI cell will launch a 24-hour toll-free helpline at the police headquarters with the primary objective of speedy disposal of complaints the Non-Resident Telanganites (NRTs) complaints.
The families of the NRIs in the state can also avail the service to lodge complaints on matters concerning them or their families in the country. They can also e-mail their complaints to the NRI cell, which would be addressed on a priority basis.
The Telangana government is also planning to set up a separate department for the welfare of NRIs. In the undivided AP, a cell was set up, which used to function occasionally when NRIs faced any problems in host countries.
