I registered with indiamart.com in the name of E A Poonawala for online promotion of our products. As soon as i registered for free services I started getting calls from India Mart to become their paid coustomer so that I would get more inquires online. Their person came and explained me that they would create a webpage and promote our business online and we would get lots of inquires from their side. I registered with them with all the promises that made for promotion. I paid around Rs.15000/-
As soon as I paid them the money I started getting mails mostly containing ads of other companies selling similar products. People from India Mart visited me to upgrade my plan forcing me to pay up more money or else the money I paid earlier would get wasted. They forced me to buy other plans like top supplier & India Mart verification etc by shelling our more money. I immediately understood that I was a victim of blackmail by india mart. Even to see the inquires on India Mart Site you need to buy credits from them. It is a shame on India Mart that this way they are looting people.
I made complains to the delhi office for India Mart they just keept on calling saying they are promoting my business and mapping it and so on. Also they kept me showing me inquires in my inbox but almost all were bogus inquires as they were simply advertizing or selling products.
My advice to any planning to register with IndiaMart Please do not do it as it is a total waste of money.
