New Delhi, Oct.7 (ANI-Business Wire India): JantaKhoj.com today became the world’s largest and most comprehensive people search portal for Indians by integrating the publicly available online records of nearly 450 million Indians.
The website also became the first ever to assemble the virtual and real life profiles of nearly 40 percent of India’s population on one portal.
JantaKhoj.com has created history by indexing and listing all publicly available details ranging from a person’s age, gender, address, contact details, pictures, videos, court records, relatives, neighbours, social networking profiles alongside blogs, web links, news and book results featuring the person’s name.
According to Tarun Bangari, Founder and CEO, JantaKhoj InfoServices Pvt. Ltd., “The aggregation process is a mammoth task considering the fact that there is no single organised database of Indians available. We have utilised every conceivable public source including directories, Google, Bing, Facebook, Fropper, MySpace, ibibo, BigA dda, Friendster, Picasa, Flickr, Youtube among others and our vision to democratize the background verification process and bring it within easy reach of every individual has been our primary motivation.”
As per Ajit Gupta, a serial entrepreneur from Silicon Valley, Founder and Chairman, JantaKhoj InfoServices Pvt. Ltd., “This development brings India at par with international people search engines and is a big step towards compilation and organisation of records from the country that has the second largest population in the world.”
JantaKhoj.com also offers the option of verifying more details through its nominally priced ‘Background check and verification’ service which can authenticate an individual’s education, employment and criminal records among others.
The interactive and user friendly website provides these services to both individuals and businesses in India. It facilitates informed decision making on the part of its consumers by offering comprehensive background verification of matrimonial candidates and employees alongside hitherto ignored but crucial segments like drivers, domestic help, and tenants. The services allow the customer to select different applicable checks (address, criminal, education, work experience, driving license, reference) as required.
Incorporated in September 2009, JantaKhoj InfoServices Pvt. Ltd is a leading information services company that aims to simplify people search and background verifications for individual consumers and businesses.
Headquartered in Hyderabad, JantaKhoj InfoServices has brought together a great team covering the diverse areas of data engineering, online business and background checks. (ANI)
