What does an
Adbhut India mean?

Through a virtual address protocol, Sthaan simplifies locating a person or physical space.

A Sthaan User ID is in the form of <user_id>@<provider_id>/<address_label> which resolves to Address Data (Sthaan ID), User Contact Info and User Preferences shown in the below image:

Do inaccurate addresses really matter?

The reality today:

Addresses don't have a standardized format. Lack of an address, missing street names, and incorrectly written pin codes and a few more things make it costly to reach people. Research indicates that the financial cost due to poorly structured addresses in India amounts to approximately 0.5% of the GDP, equating to $10-14 billion annually. Moreover, these costs are regressive, they affect the economically poor more than the rich.
