“436, Block Bd, Sector 1, Bidhan Nagar, West Bengal. From the yellow building come straight and take a right when you see…”
… Wouldn’t life be so much easier if you could say come to “KYYJTG” instead?
That’s right. Every address now has a 6 character code attached to it mapped to the most comprehensive, granular & accurate map dataset for the country. This means that every house number, residence, building,apartment, office, place of interest and even roads or administrative areas, can be precisely identified using JUST 6 characters.

MapmyIndia eLoc

For example, 147, Pocket C2a, Janakpuri, New Delhi, Delhi can now directly be identified by the eLoc = 8GDTYX.
This means that if you type www.mapmyindia.com/8GDTYX, it will take you directly to the address. So an eLoc serves as a custom URL for your digital address!

But here’s the game changer. Even the metro pillar along Shri Maa Anandmayi Marg, leading you to Kalkaji metro station, has an eLoc. Try it yourself. www.mapmyindia.com/T6T478
