Need information on tourism in India or some emergency help while you are in India, call the Incredible India tourist helpline number: 1800111363 or 1363. This number seems to be toll free even from mobile phone. The helpline is available 24×7. Earlier it was available only in English and Hindi. I was told that the helpline would be available in 12 other language but there is no time frame when that will be launched. The website: http://www.incredibleindia.org/ is already available in German, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, French, Korean, Japanese and Spanish, apart from English and Hindi.
So any tourist India local or foreigner traveling to India, can call this number for any info or emergency help.
