Despite following the instructions on the navigations, you don’t make it to the place before time. Hold on, MapmyIndia brings you to your perfect location without confusing you.
MapmyIndia, Indian digital cartography reader launched – eLoc. It is India’s first nationwide digital address which can help you identify any building, flat, office, business, city, village, locality, road or a combination. eLoc is like Aadhar number or a 6 digit code which acts as a substitute for an address which will help travellers and commuters to search and locate the exact destination they are heading for. eLoc will help Indian travellers and commuters search, share and navigate to destinations’ exact doorstep far more easily and quickly. It will also reduce time, money and fuel wastage and expenses for businesses in the e-commerce, transportation, logistics and field operations domains.
