Google is yet to receive permissions — primarily on the policy front — to launch its Street View feature in India, Sanket Gupta, Maps Lead, Google India, said on Thursday.
Street View allows users to explore world landmarks, discover natural wonders, and step inside locations such as museums, arena, parks and transport hubs. In India’s immediate neighbourhood, countries like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have it in the south Asian region while Indonesia in the southeast, and Japan are deploying it, said Gupta.
“As of now we have not been able to get permissions. Discussions are still happening on that front. It’s more of a decision on the policy side that we have not been able to get permissions. Technically, we just need cameras and cars,” Gupta told the media here.
