Normally we depute the personnels from our own group at Rajkot and in most of the cases such hire services are not required. This differs greatly on the geographical locations wherein you need the service and type of the service you need to get done from us. Please ask for particular services to know about it.

Why should I use your service? I can hire a service provider in India myself.

True. You can hire a person to do any work you require. However, be aware that choosing an appropriate person without being aware of the work culture and ethics without experience of such kind can be a time consuming and expensive proposition (unless you already know one). More importantly most work requires constant follow up and attention in detail. Great deal of diligence is required unless there is sense of belongingness and commitment in service provider. Most service providers work on (what they believe) to be the most pressing work first, often delaying other work. By diligently following up (e.g. asking the right questions) and doing some of the work in house we can save you time and money. Further, area of specialization by the service providers plays pivotal role in understanding and framing strategy. We get proper responsible polite person for you to answer and respond to your querries and questions. We are objective driven and all concern with us know the object of the particular taks. Unless you know the person and its specialization area with his capacity to perform the task, one cannot entrust the work. You need a proper guide who can take you to the proper person. We take you outside only if we do not take the matter in lines with our policy and limited infrastructure in the area in which your case has jurisdiction.
