The project aims to provide emergency medical aid with the help of ambulances equipped with life saving drugs, equipments and trained staff including paramedics.

The ambulances would use Geographic Information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) systems, which would help find the nearest ambulance and send it wherever required.

In the first phase, 400 ambulances would be acquired by March 2008 and their number would increase to 700 by March 2009, the official said.
