It was true during 2014, but ONLY for Mumbai. As of the date of this post the number is shown invalid so the service looks like is closed.

During 2014 Mumbai Police along with MTNL started this SMS service for women travelling alone.

As this message did not say its ONLY for Mumbai, after it went viral in Bangalore, Bangalore Police had to give a statement to denounce it as a hoax and there were media reports also about this being a hoax which is true for Bangalore.

Similarly for Telegana also this news has been spreading and its NOT TRUE FOR TELENGANA.
