Search Portal Adds Cuttack to Its Service
BHUBANESWAR: City-based web search portal khojakhoji.com has added services available in Cuttack to its list.
Inaugurating the new service, classified.khojakhoji.com, DGP Sanjeev Marik said the website was becoming increasingly useful to people for everyday use. The website has been developed by Achyut System and Services Private Limited.
Website Director Saroj Swain said they are working on providing all kinds of information related to city in the online search portal.
The city-based website can filter the search results to the nearest location, which other websites might not offer. As it is still in its nascence, the website is yet to have an exhaustive database.
But, it makes up for it by having a strong feedback section, wherein one can submit a query and the website's team will work on it. It also features a call facility, where a customer can get information over phone instead of having to browse through the website.
