Recently, Get My Parking, a Delhi-based 18-months old startup providing cloud-based mobile parking technology helped Isha Foundation (founded by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev) to manage the parking for approximately 5-10 lakh attendees at the Mahashivratri event on unveiling of 112 ft long bust of Lord Shiva at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains. At the event, around 20 parking lots manned by 300+ volunteers from the Isha foundation were all connected using Get My Parking technology. Visitors to the Mahashivratri event could access real-time availability and do advance booking using GMP mobile apps. Due to PM Modi’s presence for the event, there was very high security arrangement. Mobile network jammers were used for 8 hours; Get My Parking had to come up with alternatives to make sure real-time data is still reaching visitors despite lack of mobile network. Several visitors reserved their parking even a day in advance to avail the convenience.
