Posted October 03, 2018 06:27:59 The earthquake-related information center will close at the end of the month.
This comes just weeks after the quake-related social media information center was shut down in the aftermath of the massive quake in India.
According to the office of the director general of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), this decision was taken after the earthquake disaster in the country.
The information center, which has been operating since 2005, will be shut down at the same time as the rest of the office and will be used for educational purposes, the IISc said.
In the wake of the devastating earthquake, the office was asked to look into the possibility of an online platform that would provide a portal to help people with their personal information.
The office of information technology secretary Piyush Kumar Bhatia had been working with the Indian Meteorological Department and Indian Institute for Technology to establish an online portal.
