What is eLoc?

India has an address system that identifies houses, buildings, places, government offices, businesses etc. but very few parts of our country have a formal address. And to add to this the varied dialects, languages, culture and other differences across India, the situation becomes mind-boggling – each individual reads and interprets an address differently. What is required is a Simple, Standardized and Precise pan-India digital address system.

Think of an eLoc as the pincode to your doorstep, or a precise digital address of any place, building, business, apartment, government office, road, administrative area and so on. This 6 character digital address uniquely identifies any place and is linked to various attributes like floor number, door number, etc.
