Genesys International, Tech Mahindra partners with Google

Google Maps has launched Street View in India in collaboration with Tech Mahindra and Genesys International.

This is the first time that Street View services will be completely handled by local partners.

The service for a 360-degree view of streets, tourist spots, and landmarks could not be launched in India before because of regulatory hurdles.

Street View will be available on Google Maps with imagery licensed from the local partners and covering over 150,000 km across ten cities: Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Nashik, Vadodara, Ahmednagar, and Amritsar.

Google, Genesys International, a mapping and geospatial company, and Tech Mahindra plan to expand the service to more than 50 cities by the end of 2022.

Despite being a 'Digital India' stock, Tech Mahindra shares have fallen over 40% in 2022 so far.

Note that IT stocks are falling in 2022 due to recent global crisis and fears of a recession.

The IT index has corrected over 30% from its all-time high of 39,446, raising the question - is it time to buy the dip in IT stocks?
