How to improve auto-location in Google maps!

Most of us would use Ola/Uber such like apps regularly. They auto-locate our address to some nearby landmark. My office is located at One Horizon Center. It is auto-located to some building called BLC-143, Golf Course Road or other buildings depending on which corner you are standing in. The problem is magnified at the boundary of residential areas.

As a consultant, who uses cabs almost everyday – it becomes a big hassle for me. I’m sure others face it to some extent. Here is a photo from a recent trip to Mumbai airport. I couldn’t book an Uber because it showed me standing ~2km away on the expressway and not at the arrivals.

Would some of you know how we can update the location in Google Maps so that the correct address shows up? I’d like to enable it for few of my regularly used places.
