Google Street View comes to India, with data from local partners

Google has introduced its 360-degree interactive panorama feature for 10 Indian cities using data from local partners Tech Mahindra and Mumbai-based Genesis International, a decade after it was banned from collecting data for its Street View services. The new National Geospatial Policy, 2021, has made this possible by allowing local businesses to gather this type of data and licence it to others. This also makes it the first country where Street View has been enabled primarily by partners.
