For validation of crop, banks can use MapmyIndia’s workforce management solution - WorkMate - to capture the location of the farms along with photographs. It is Web App with High resolution satellite imagery (HRSI) that will help to verify the location and validate information. The Field representatives can download the application on the smart phones and can simply do a check-in to capture the Lat/Long of the location, take pictures of the site, document customer information etc.
For example, a field workforce employee through WorkMate can verify the location of the agricultural land and upload photographs taken from the location, validating that crops have been sown. The same data will be sent to the server. Next, the location of the farm land against which the crop loan is being approved, can be visualized against the map with satellite imagery, which shall provide first-hand information to the banks on validity of the loan demand.
