What is Comprehensive Criminal Record Screening?
Finding a case against any individual or entity across various databases such as all the courts, tribunals, defaulters list, etc. in India has been an impossible task so far with no single consolidated source that allows such a search. Most companies conducting such a search have been trying to conduct search at eCourts which doesn’t give you the desired results as the required information of the case record in Indian courts is not available as open search.
Also, eCourts search interface and capabilities to search across number of courts has its own set of challenges and limitations. For instance, if you want to search across the records across all the courts in India for a period of last 10 years, it will take more than 1000 hours i.e. almost 120 working days which is equivalent to 6 months for a record search on one name with one spelling which is unrealistic and seems insensible.

By carrying out court record checks at pre-employment stage, you put a 'No Entry' sign for the wrong type of personnel into your Company. This check is conducted in association with leading Law firms registered with the Bar Council of India. With the number of defaulters and the rate of frauds on the rise, foolproof employee verification is not complete without a court records check.
