MapmyIndia Move app & maps.mapmyindia.com are empowering citizens to help authorities (PMOIndia, local governments, police etc.) know about public grievances (e.g.non-allowance of essential supplies) and lapses in enforcement. This can be easily done on the MapmyIndia maps - citizens can share/tag the relevant authorities pin-pointing the specific problem, alongwith its location. Authorities can immediately activate the nearest and most suitable person/resource to reach the exact spot, using MapmyIndia’s live navigation guidance, without delay. Since the authorities have specific and accurate information about the nature problem the person dispatched/deployed will be well equipped/informed to handle the situation.
“MapmyIndia is committed to Prime Minister’s appeal to the public to jointly fight the threat of coronavirus and towards the realization of his promise of uninterrupted supply of essential goods and services to all corners of the country. In these difficult times every bit, even the smallest action taken in the right direction, counts. With MapmyIndia Maps and the Move app we are enabling the citizens to help authorities. Our objective is to facilitate better governance through better coordination/cooperation amongst citizens and authorities,“ says Rohan Verma, CEO & Executive Director MapmyIndia.
With limited resources and many constraints, the government authorities are still doing their best to maintain calm and keep Indians safe and sound. Using resources like the Move app and MapmyIndia maps we all can act as force multipliers for the authorities. Just by tagging and guiding them to the exact area of occurence, we are not only saving wastage of precious resources but also enhancing their efficiency. In a way, we are actually helping ourselves. And it is very simple (Video link: https://youtu.be/1Wwf6csbklk):
