eLoc by MapmyIndia is a game-changing location innovation for a Digital India!

Folks, tell me if you’ve ever been hassled by these…

– searching and navigating to an exact house number/door number using the standard maps app on your Android/iOS mobile

– your Ola and Uber arrives behind/100m away from your home/office to pick u making u walk a distance to get in

– the taxi/ecomm delivery guy keeps calling you to ask exact location and directions to your house’s doorstep

At MapmyIndia, we are releasing an innovative, simple yet powerful, solution to all these woes: we call it eLoc and it is India’s first Nation-wide Digital Address System.

eLoc is simply digital address, wherein an easy to remember, short, unique 6 character code is all you need to remember/type/provide and search/navigate/discover a destination place, down to a specific door number/flat/building. We have released over 2 crore (20 million) eLocs across the length and breadth of rural and urban India, the most by anyone, and will aggressively update and add new eLocs as new places come up and as the few missing places from our database are reported, especially with the help of the community.

We hope to deliver immense benefits to consumers, businesses and governments through eLoc and collaborate/with/share our eLoc APIs and apps with a thriving app developer and enterprise/govt ecosystem to leverage our 20+ years investment in building this out for the benefit of all Indians and India. So reach out to us to partner!
