Second, we verify the Worker for any possible Criminal/Court Cases that may exist in his/her name, if at all, around the neighbouring Indian District Courts around his address. This check is again conducted with the help of our partner company, BetterPlace., based on past records that exist in the Criminal/Court Record Check System. BetterPlace conducts Criminal/Court checks through reliable government district portal for on-going case details and judgements www.ecourts.gov.in and similar legal database.
