SMS is regarded as the fastest mode of communication today because of which every sector makes use of it in a large scale. From the many uses of SMS now people can receive alerts about rains via SMS. The Maharashtra government has decided to send rain alerts to everyone in the state. They have decided to send monsoon alerts via SMS to all citizens and visitors visiting the state so that they take the necessary precautions before rains hit.
They have come up with this new service called as “mass SMS” that uses GIS technology and does not require any kind of registration. These SMS alerts will be delivered to people staying in the city, taluka and district. Visitors who would enter the Maharashtra state too would receive alerts. This SMS service is being provided by “Mastek” (a company providing Global IT solutions)
This SMS service will be starting soon and the main purpose behind launching such a service is to notify people about the climatic conditions and the monsoon. People who would receive alerts via SMS will find it convenient for scheduling their outing. This is indeed a very good initiative taken by “Mastek” and the Maharashtra Government to help people fight the monsoon season.
