The short code 1517
will be opened in all Local Exchanges, TDM Tax / IP Tax / Soft Switches
/ Mobile MSC / GMSC / WLL MSC of all Telecom circles. STD code + 1517 will also be opened for inter-circle calls.
is available across all circles and the calls from other service
providers may be routed to BSNL as per existing inter connect agreement
Features of National Child Helpline Number 1517 are :
- Category-l service’ ( i.e. mandatory service to be provided by at the Access providers )
- Accessibility: Un-restricted, i.e. available on STD also

is really a good move by DOT & BSNL and we may hope these new
helpline numbers will be very much helpful to ordinary people in India.
