Central government’s unified, multi-service mobile application UMANG is getting new bells and whistles. Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has entered into an agreement with MapmyIndia to enable map services on UMANG app. Now users will be able to find location of various government facilities and services, from ration shops to ESIC hospitals and everything in between, right on the application.
“To further enhance the initiatives of Digital India Programme, and keeping in view the theme of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, MeitY has enabled map services in UMANG App through an MOU with MapmyIndia,” the ministry said. “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.”
As of now, the UMANG app has added map functionality for three services: Mera Ration, eNAM and Damini. The ‘Mera Ration’ integration will let users navigate to the ‘Nearest Fair Price Shops’, which will be visible in the form of pointers on the MapmyIndia integrated map.
For eNAM, the map will show nearby mandis, while for Damini, the map will give lightning alerts to users with visuals of nearby areas where lightning has struck in the last few minutes.
