New Delhi: Further discussions have been held regarding the already signed Memorandum of Understanding between Fiji and India, which will form the basis of the new Air Services Agreement between the two countries.

Attorney General and Minister for Civil Aviation, Aiyaz Sayed‑Khaiyum had a meeting with the Indian Minister for Civil Aviation Shri P Ashok Gajapathi Raju yesterday.

They also discussed the need to explore new avenues to further strengthen India’s engagement with the whole Pacific region.

Sayed-Khaiyum informed the Minister that from April, there will be direct flight routes from Fiji to Singapore.

He says the shorter travel time together with visa on arrivals for Indians presents an opportunity for more trade and investment for both countries and also for the region, through his country.

The Attorney General also thanked the Indian Government for its assistance towards Fiji’s progress over the years.

Sayed-Khaiyum says it is evident that Fiji has very close ties with India and this has been strengthened by the visit of the Indian Prime Minister to the country in 2014. (Source: http://fijivillage.com)

Commuters in the national capital can now view “auto-rickshaw” routes as well as fares on Google Maps app, tech giant Google Monday said.

“Starting today, commuters in Delhi will be able to see a new public transport mode in Google Maps — auto-rickshaws. By selecting this mode of transport, commuters will be able to view suggested routes for the ride as well as the estimated auto-rickshaw fares,” Google said in a statement.

The new feature will reflect fares based on the official fare model shared by the Delhi Traffic Police, it said.

The latest version of the application includes enhanced voice input.

This feature will be available in the Google Maps app on the Android devices.

The idea is to incorporate one of most commonly used modes of public transport in Google Maps and share transparent information about the price of journey, Google Maps Product Manager Vishal Dutta said.

“Currently, for an unfamiliar journey, commuters often overpay and don’t have an idea about the distance or best route,” he added.

Dutta said the feature will also help the users plan their journey better.

“…so they could look at the expected cost of the auto-rickshaw ride and decide whether they want to take it all the way, or perhaps take a different mode of transport instead — like a bus or the metro,” he explained.
