This new feature will help save time for users who seek information, as a business’ address and phone numbers will be displayed on their mobiles in a few seconds. Users can avail of this facility in a moving car or in a packed bus or at their home.

Sharing his thoughts on this new initiative by Sulekha.com, Vineet Pabreja, Director-Interactive Services, said, “The mobile is an exciting space to be in. At present, India has about 100 million mobile subscribers and we happen to be the first company in India delivering Yellow Pages in the WAP format. With the launch of Yellow Pages on WAP, mobile users can now access information easily and faster.”

For the record, Sulekha Yellow Pages was launched six months back in Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad, and provides information on businesses in India, the US and Canada.
