The need for something that could deliver news and information most relevant to us gave rise to the idea of Mumbai Live. Mumbai’s diverse culture and booming 1.25cr population made us realize the need for a platform that would enable the citizens to voice their opinions, address their concerns and bring them closer digitally. We are a mobile application and website that aims to keep the citizen in touch with the happenings in his/her own locality. Our local updates are segregated based on Municipal Wards. Within these wards we will provide the following facilities to the user:
- Society & Culture
- Lifestyle and Entertainment
- Mumbai City as well as national and international news related to Mumbai.
- Emergency Services
- Contacts of Government/ Administrative Offices
- Traffic updates
Our reporters/ stringers placed in every ward shall send in daily ward wise news and information which will be edited in house and distributed via the website and mobile application in 3 languages – English Hindi and Marathi. Moreover, the news will be suitably structured before being sent out in order to give the people a possible solution to a common problem they might be facing as a community. Once subscribed, the user will be greeted with a personal newsletter every morning that features the latest developments in his/her own ward based on user preferences.
Through Mumbai Live, we hope to create greater awareness for citizens of their immediate neighbourhoods.
