To aid people Sol has created its own maps for the citizens. As per surveyor-general of India Swarna Subba Rao Google Map is mostly used to find restaurants and parks, that is for casual use. It is being advised that citizens don’t depend on Google Maps for being extreme accuracy as the government itself doesn’t rely on them.

The complaint with Google Map was done previously as well by Cambodia and India. They had issues with how boarders are being presented on the service. Google Map thus started versions of Map as per the location of the country. More than a billion people use this service and it help them find their destinations. Suggestions are continuously made on how it can improve its service, but a government calling it unreliable is one of its own kind situation.
