Since going live with JantaKhoj website, our People Search service has been available for free. It was kept in beta version till the website upgrade which we did last month. The intent was to see the market adoption and acceptance. The entire process of building the People Search database and continuously maintaining and updating it, requires fair bit of continued efforts and associated costs. With a view to offset some of these costs and to continue making more investments in improving the People Search and associated customer service, we are moving over to paid subscription model for People Search.
Three variants of subscriptions are being offered – Day (24 hour) Pass, Monthly Pass and Yearly Pass, costing Rs 49, Rs 299 and Rs 999 respectively. Each of these variants allows unlimited searches during the period of subscription. Also, if newer data sources or updated records are added during the subscription, they are automatically included in the subscription package. As always, support will be available via email, phone or live chat.
If you are an individual who requires looking up a person or a few persons, the Daily Pass will be the best option. If you are a business and want to try out the service, the Monthly Pass will be suitable. Once your business sees value in the service after trying out the service for a month, you should consider going in for the Yearly Pass as it gives the best value and maximum discount.
As always, I look forward to your comments and feedback.
