The onset of digitization has opened avenues of opportunities for online matchmaking across India. Matrimonial sites in India are mushrooming at a rapid rate and it has bought a considerable change in the attitude of people.
People earlier were skeptical about finding a match online but now, this digital ease has made a change of perception. However, we can say that matrimonial platforms in India still require much advancement to make it safe and secure for the users.
We often hear stories of fraud happening on these platforms and that stops us from registering across such platforms. Yet, we are here with a 10 step checklist to ensure that you find your perfect match and not a fraud experience.
1. Check reliability.
Before registering anywhere online, know that the company is valid and not a fraud. With no proper guidelines in action, companies are erupting every day in the field of matchmaking. It’s important to understand that such businesses leverage users’ emotions to fraud them. Hence, review the validity of the platform before registering there.
2. Opt for the niche.
India is a culturally robust country. And people still hesitate to think of marriage outside caste or even religion. Hence, in the crowd of billions, if you wish to find a peculiar kind, it’s better to opt for a niche instead of a general matrimonial site.
i.e. There are ample religion-specific matrimonial sites in India. This includes Christian matrimonial sites, Muslim, Jain, Brahmin, Hindu matrimonial sites, etc.
3. Check your needs.
There are various sorts of matrimonial platforms. There exist platforms that are open for search and allows you to search individually your life partner. But then, some matchmakers take it upon themselves to find you your perfect match. Choose the kind of matrimony you are looking for.
4. Online or offline modes.
Now, many of these matrimonial platforms are online in the sense that they have just made a website. But their operations are fully offline. It’s upon you to decide, whether a completely remote service is suitable for you or not. And if you require offline assistance, then opt for services that are available at your close proximity.
5. Check customer reviews.
Nothing works better than word of mouth, even today. We suggest you register on platforms where someone you know has already had a better experience. If that’s not the case, check for customer reviews and check its authenticity. But don’t place your blind trust from the beginning, anywhere.
6. Verified profiles.
It’s important that you focus on verified profiles and not the number of registered users that any site advocate. Be smart. When there are verified users, there are fewer chances of encountering fraud. Besides, your chances of finding a qualitative match increase. The matrimonial site you register with must verify the profile of their users.
7. Check your match.
This means that not every matrimonial platform out there is suitable for you even when it’s the best in the market. For an instance, all your try for finding a match in the Muslim community would go to waste if you are registering for strict Brahmin matrimony. Similarly, you cannot register on a dating kind matrimonial platform if you wish to arrange a match conventionally. Hence, always check your match with a matrimonial site before registering there.
Now, this is specifically required if you are opting for a matchmaking service. Check for the company’s database and its wide reach. If you are paying for a premium service you need to ensure that the company has adequate profiles in their database to satiate your needs.
9. See the red lights.
It’s easy to identify fraudsters if we keep a keen eye on them. Before you pay for a premium anywhere, go thoroughly through the web, reviews, figures, and stats. You can easily identify mishaps if the matrimonial site is claiming something wrong.
Lastly, security and privacy are of the utmost importance when it comes to online matrimonial sites. Know that the matrimonial site is secured and has strict privacy policies. When you enter your data anywhere online, the site mustn’t misuse it.
