Rakesh Verma, Chairman and Managing Director, MapmyIndia said "25 years ago, our vision that someday 80% of all data would have a location component, and our desire to build something that could benefit all of India, led us to build the best digital map product for the country and world-class advanced location-based technologies. We have always believed in Aatmanirbhar and as a company, have since the beginning focused on building indigenous technologies and remained profitable. MapmyIndia knows India better, which is reflected in the better detail and localisation of our intelligent maps and app, and we do not use user's data for advertising, unlike global search giants, making MapmyIndia Move a better, safer and more intelligent alternative for Indians. We need the support of all of you - users and the government - to use and encourage the use of MapmyIndia, be vocal for local and help us go local se global. We thank the Government of India for recognising us as a winner in the Aatmanirbhar Bharat App Challenge".
