EMRI At GVK, a lot of emphasis is laid on social development and sustainability. Various projects at GVK have been undertaken to uplift the living conditions and raise the general standard of living of the deprived sections of our society.

GVK carries out its social initiatives through GVK Foundation. This is the social activity wing of GVK and runs many development programs on a national level like providing housing for under privileged people, education, health and hygiene, community-based programs, empowerment and entrepreneurship development, arts, music, sports, emergency response services and a number of other socio-economic initiatives.

The GVK EMRI (Emergency Management and Research Institute) is one of the most important social initiatives of GVK. It is a non-profit organization based on the Public Private Partnership model. It attends to every emergency situation - be it a medical crisis, a law and order situation or a fire disaster. It provides services at par with global standards and follows modern principles of management and leadership to serve the nation.

This service is spread across 16 States (Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Gujarat, Goa, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Assam, Meghalaya, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and West Bengal) and two Union Territories (Diu Daman and Dadra Nagar Haveli). With the help of this widespread initiative and equipped with around 13,000 ambulances, till date over 68 million cases have been attended to and over 3.2 million lives have been saved.

A three digit toll free emergency response number – 108 is accessible from all fixed lines and mobile phones across the locations that this service is available in.

EMRIGVK EMRI has collaborated with the AP Police Department for “Project Dial-100” to integrate best practices in emergency response management and thus ensure efficient service delivery to the citizens across the State. An integrated Dial-100 centre will be set up that would cohesively coordinate all emergency services like medical, fire and other disaster related response services. The combined services under one roof will widen the scope of emergency situations being handled across the State, thus providing the citizens access to immediate help.
