A recent study by Dalberg Global Development Advisors in association with Confederation of Indian Industry and Google, smart maps (geospatial data) and Smart Address can help India gain upwards of US$ 8 billion in savings and value, save 13,000 lives, and reduce 1 million metric tons of carbon emissions a year: and this is in cities alone.
Now if we consider entire country, please think these number for a while.
The only problem is we that are not even considering 3/4th of the entire country (because less than 1/4th of the entire country is in the form of cities) very sad!!
