Getting around Indian cities could be even easier for tourists in the future.

Tourists disembarking flights to India are confronted with an atmosphere that is unlike any other place in the world.

Once they have left the sanctity of the airport, the roads of the major cities such as Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai can seem a little daunting, especially if people are unsure where they are meant to be going.

Now it is easier for tourists to see the sites in the country, as Nokia has produced a range of apps to aid travel around these mega cities.

In India, maps are available for over 4,000 cities and little has been left out as there are over seven million points of interest across the country on the digital database.

Nokia India director and head of smart services Vipul Mehrotra said these could also be mundane things such as hospitals, shopping centres and restaurants.

“Presently only Mumbai and Delhi have live traffic facility, which we expect to expand to other cities so that the user can get the exact information of time required to reach a particular location as per the daily traffic conditions,” he added.
