The government is planning towards digitally mapping all the addresses in the country, whether residential or official. MapmyIndia’s eLoc, India’s first Nation-wide Digital Address will transform historical addresses and disrupt traditional mapping and navigation services, bringing immense convenience to individuals and significant benefits to businesses and governments across India.
The pilot project is being carried out by the Department of Posts (DoP), which comes under the purview of the Ministry of Communications. Department of Posts will allot a six-character alphanumeric digital address for every property and create eLoc or eLocation. – Once mapped, the addresses will be linked to information like property and ownership details, property tax records, and details on utilities like electricity, water and gas.
Mr. Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia informs that benefits of eloc will help travelers and commuters search, share and navigate to doorstep destination. It will also reduce time, money, fuel wastage and expenses for businesses in the e-commerce, transportation, logistics and field operations domains”.
