This service is available on a free of cost basis.

17. As a paid member can I get refund of fees for the unpaid period of my subscription term?
Regret, there is no provision for refund of fee.
18. How large is your database?
In all 30,000 plus individuals have registered their profiles. However, only 8000 have so far completed the eligibility requirement and hence stand activated till date. As a result of promotion, database is growing up by 100 profiles every week. Being a niche site, we don’t ever expect a very large database. Our target is not to show you a large number of profiles. It is to show you extremely relevant ones.
19. I am a paid member. How to get contact numbers or email of the profiles or is it like we can get it only after acceptance?
1. You could evince your interest by writing a mail through the portal. You may like to mention your contact details in this mail.
2. You have the facility to check if your mail has been read or not (you see double tick like we see in whatsapp messages)
3. In case your profile has been read and no response has been received, we have sufficient reasons to believe lack of interest on their part.
4. In case your message has not been read for 3-4 days, may please let us know the user ID(s) of such profiles. We will be happy to call each one of them on your behalf and check their comfort on sharing their mobile number/E mail with you.
5. We usually revert within one day with feedback on discussions with them. Happy to pass on their contact details with their permission.
