The site is currently available in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad and is in English. In addition to India, Kijiji can also be found in more than 19 countries and 185 cities across the world. It is a start-up business created by a small team of entrepreneurs inside eBay, who wanted to help communities connect around areas of local interest.

Unique categories like Free and Charity are being launched as an opportunity to enable local citizens to be socially responsible to their city and the needy. On can donate old toys, books, clothes, furniture, in fact anything useful, by logging on to the website www.kijiji.in.

Jiby Thomas, Head, Kijiji India, said, “We see Kijiji as a great way to help Indians feel more connected to their local communities. They can login and discuss anything under the sun, whether it’s finding an apartment, or a job or selling furniture, the car or even discussing about the city’s best restaurants. Kijiji was created to be the online neighbourhood meeting place for Indians.”

The website is a simple, easy-to-use platform that meets the personal needs of the local community in a city.
