In an earlier post about the useful Indian government websites, I have listed about 10 government websites in India. In this post about the useful Indian websites, we will be covering both Government as well as other public websites of my interest.
Categories such as Bank sites, Email providers. ISP’s etc. are not included here. This list would provide the websites based on common interest and focused groups like above may not fit here within this list.
I would have separate posts on the specific sectors sometime later.
Now here is my list of Useful Indian websites, where I frequent a lot.
IRCTC.CO.IN is the website for booking your train tickets. The site is very user friendly and allows you to book tickets easily. Using the connection with the IndianRail.Gov.in website, it provides you an option for searching the train numbers and other information about travelling between two stations.
FlipKart.com is one of the most visited ecommerce site when I wanted to do some online purchase. In most cases, my purchase is limited to books and occasionally other things like mobile phones. The most interesting thing I like about them is the easiness to use the site.
RedBus.in is another useful Indian website. If you are planning a travel and Trains are not available, the best option is to get into a Bus. RedBus gives you an option to book your Bus tickets
4. Book My Show
Bookmyshow.com is an interesting website if you are looking for tickets, especially cinema tickets.
5. Job Sites
There are a number of Job boards in India. My personal favourites are Naukri.com and TimesJobs.com.
6. Real Estate websites
Looking for a dream home? You might want to use sites like 99acers.com, Magicbricks.com etc… For people who are interested in properties in Kerala, can visit LivArea.com
CricInfo is for cricket lovers, who is not?, those who are away from the TV. CricInfo provides updates on worldwide cricket matches
MakeMyTrip is a useful site when you plan a air travel. This site has ties with airline providers and at times offers cheap tickets than the principal companies.
9. Market place sites
Marketplace sites such as Ebay.in, OLX.in, ClickIndia.com etc. are a good set of websites for buying and selling items online. It would be interesting to note that your “no more used” products would find some value through these sites.
MoneyControl.com is a website for those who are interested in financial side. This site provides various reviews and advices of stocks and other investment tools. Websites such as NSEINDIA.com and BSEINDIA.com provides information about the stocks and related products.
