Google Maps Street View India now can take a virtual tour of these 10 cities

Google Street View is making a comeback in India after a decade of being banned due to security concerns.

New Delhi: Google Maps is finally set to launch its Street View service in 10 cities in India. Google has announced that the service will be implemented in collaboration with Tech Mahindra and Genesis. Google Street View lets users see streets around the world in 360 degrees, according to the company.

Already when Google tried to launch this service in India, the Indian government refused to grant permission for its operations twice due to insufficient security.

In this case, this service is going to be introduced in 10 major cities of India, namely Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Nashik, Vadodara, Ahmednagar and Amritsar, meeting the necessary security norms and requirements.

Google also said that it plans to bring this service to more than 50 Indian cities by the end of 2022. Google has said that for personal safety, this Street View will only show people’s faces and vehicle number plates dimmed. Additionally, Google has tied up with the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to provide air quality information.
