Geospatial Media and Communications interviews Rohan Verma on eLoc by MapmyIndia

“eLoc represents a Smart Digital Address System. The World Bank in 2005 said that Addressing is a real problem. Which is why you see countries going through a new address system every 20 years. In India for example, there are so many ways of addressing… and these are confusing, and nothing has really solved the problem…

When an emergency happens and someone calls up the dial 100 service saying there’s an emergency, send someone to C block 231, 3rd floor etc…. that’s taking too much time. They should just say, ‘send someone to 8GDTYX”. Its much quicker and dis-ambiguous…

We believe that this will be the fundamental base. Just like Aadhaar has been for people, eLoc will be for addresses.” – Rohan Verma, CTO & Executive Director, MapmyIndia
