To further enhance the initiatives of Digital India Programme, the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) has enabled map services in UMANG App through an MoU with MapmyIndia.
As a result of integration of UMANG with MapmyIndia Maps, citizens will be able to find government facilities nearest to their location, such as mandis, blood banks and much more, at the click of a button. They will also be able to see these on the most detailed and interactive street and village level maps of India, built by MapmyIndia.
Citizens will also be able to view the driving distance, get directions and turn by turn voice and visual guidance to locations, including traffic and road safety alerts during navigation, through the linkage between UMANG App and MapmyIndia.
UMANG app has already started to provide map functionality through MapmyIndia services such as: Mera Ration; eNAM; and Damini.
To further increase usefulness to citizens, the map functionality will be shortly enabled in many more services such as: ESIC; Indian Oil Service; NHAI; National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB); and Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (Meri Sadak).
