Diwali the festival of light, brought everyone together at MapmyIndia. At MapmyIndia we celebrate life creating the aura of peace, happiness and prosperity.
The entire office was decorated with flowers, light, rangoli and lamps. Dressed in traditional Indian attire we celebrated the rich culture of India. The celebrations had started by offering our tribute to Lord Ganesha by presenting few melodious songs. Followed by some amazing performances from MapmyIndians. The celebrations builds the spirit of unity, giving value to every MapmyIndian with the feeling of festivity.
Time flies when you are building a B2B driven and a B2C oriented, successful technology company. In our fourth move since the company’s founding, we have continued to live by the mantra “work hard and scale up.
We are excited at MapmyIndia, moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things! e have moved to a new and bigger office. We have grown from a 25 employee, 200 sqft office in a commercial market, to a spacious 36000 sqft sprawling office in a business commercial hub housing 750+ employees! Currently situated at 237 Okhla Industrial Area Phase 3 the office is centrally located in the business hub of South Delhi. We thank our customers who have supported and encouraged us through our journey and inspired us to achieve our goals.
Since inception, one of MapmyIndia’s founding principles has been to work in teams ‘to turn impossible to possible’. In this spirit, a senior leadership is sent every year to encourage cross-functional collaboration, and this year they went to Budapest, Vienna and Prague!
“Working for over 10 years at Mapmyindia, it is always refreshing to spend time with my co-workers” says MapmyIndia, COO, Sapna Ahuja. Bringing in the values and experiences, back from a company outing to the office definitely improves workplace environment, creates harmony among co-workers and build teamwork, generating a positive atmosphere for business growth. Soaking in the beautiful cities of Europe: Prague, Budapest and Vienna, the team explored and enjoyed every moment. It was a fun filled way of bringing together a diversity of perspectives that combine to make the team more productive and innovative. They learn to share their thoughts and improve their ability to analyse situations together and perform as a team.
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!
Would love to know all your thoughts and appreciate your help in spreading the world. Check your eloc and start using/sharing with folks, and if the place is missing please add it to instantly get your user generated eLoc.

Lastly, think of all the possibilities and implications of this innovation. How do you think this can help all Indians and India? Thanks for reading, trying and sharing thoughts and spreading the word!
