Default Online Yellow Pages (Indian) you use

As part of a research I am doing, I'd like to know what yellow pages sites you know of and use to search for local Indian Businesses.
The ones I know of are sulekha.com & justdial.com
If you have any info on from where these sites source their data, it would be great.

Send me any info, even if the site you use caters just to any particular city/state and not whole of India.

Thanks,
- Jag

Just dial is one of the worst bunch of losers - except their reach. They NEVER give correct data. Asklaila is the best - which is why Airtel chose them!

Even Infomedia website isnt half as good as AskLaila. Geographical search pwns them all.

oh yes - asklaila is amazing where it has coverage!

JustDial is huge no doubt, but they return totally wrong results - esp if called. I may be in Gurgaon - and they return results from north delhi, some 50km away - and I had called for everything from insurance to electrical shops!

Its important to use the best tool for the purpose!

Justdial works brilliantly here in Mumbai, never wrong along with 4 additional numbers they give you regarding whatever. So thats 1(the one you asked for)+4=5 numbers that they give and all have been correct for me.

Nope. Like for example in lucknow they are quite useful.

But in GURGAON (specifically) they have horrible results. Which is quite surprising. And the fact is that the quality (or lack thereof) of the results has stayed as bad over the past year and half.

And if you ever dare to call them, you get junk.

Basically, they have these paid clients (say in East Delhi). Now when i call up and ask for gurgaon related junta, I get results from all over with a caveat "Also serves gurgaon" - and invariably its of no use. I mean, 40km away - and that is AFTER specifically requesting only relevant results.
