Kolkata Police ties up with Google Maps for pandal and traffic indications
Kolkata Police has tied up with Google Maps to mark out all the important Durga Pujo pandals within its jurisdiction. Food stalls at and near the puja pandals would be marked too.
The tie-up means that Kolkata Police and Google will stay in touch with each other 24 hours a day through the police control room. Naturally, all traffic movements and congestion due to heavy traffic would be reflected on the mobile map too.
The new indications on the maps have been made available from Wednesday, October 2.
Like every year, the police have also released a printed map depicting the important Durga Pujo pandals, routes to reach them and parking lots.
Like last year, this year too Kolkata Police would be running special Bandhu vans, which will be moving across the city to provide special assistance for missing and rescued persons.
Their contact numbers are 90029 99999, 100, 1098 and (033) 2214 1835.
