The most awaited stable release of the Indian Classifieds site is finally up. 

Visit: The site offers users to post their advertisements absolutely FREE of cost. The site caters to almost all cities in India and there are numerous categories one can post an Ad into. The best part it’s made by two guys from Belgaum.

Please point your browsers to http://uproot.insmall_banner partners with Uproot and all ads posted for Belgaum can be seen in one page,

What is ?

A simple website to post classifieds online for free, it has been exclusively created for Indian users, and covers all districts in the country (600+).

Everything about the site is geared towards simplicity, including:

·         the look — very few graphics + dynamic interface

·         The operational model — zero intervention between seller and buyer is our policy.

What is it not?

While making the site, one path we did not tread (nor intend to tread) is social networking. They will add more features in the future to facilitate collaboration between groups of users. But they don’t expect it to become a core feature of the site. The reason is — keeping things simple for everyone, in particular the average or internet newbie’s. is the first baby from the Uproot Labs, Belgaum. Uproot labs are a gargantuan team of two Harshad Joglekar & Dr Ameet Patil who know each other from college days. After a “long time, no see” span of 10 years, they met over Orkut, and found that they both had an urge to start a company from our hometown, Belgaum. Dr.Ameet Patil also runs his own startup Spundhan which has already been featured on this blog.

Uproot has been designed by both as they have major experience in system software, particularly embedded system software. They are trying something new; web services. They shoulder equal responsibilities. They both design, code, make decisions with equal flair.

They chose Belgaum as it has its own set of advantages & disadvantages. But the advantages are now out marking the latter with the advent of internet.

 They chose to develop their own web framework; a tailor made suit that fits needs, and is optimized for performance.

 They also plan to have key partnerships with other sites for the content and AllAboutBelgaum was the first one to approach them in this regard and a feed only for Belgaum is here.up11

 So all the ads you post under Belgaum will be coming up there automatically. (Collective growth of It & ITeS services in Belgaum)

 In the longer term they aim to monetize from premium Ads on the website. The core functionality will always remain free.

Here are some of the features of


While posting an Ad the user is required to select the most relevant category. This in turn helps people to quickly and easily find what they need. Care has been taken to include the most common categories the users will encounter in their daily life.

Ads that offer and Ads that want

Broadly speaking, every Ad has either something to offer to the viewer, or wants something from the viewer. It is specified during the creation of an Ad, and helps viewers to quickly find items that offer or want something from them.

Specifying the location

Viewers can choose to filter their Ads depending on the physical location. One can choose a specific city, a state or all locations in India.


They are very concerned about your privacy and take it very seriously.

There is an in-built mechanism to contact users, without needing to divulge either the seller’s or buyer’s contact information until each party voluntarily chooses to do so.


Users/Visitors to the site can view/search all advertisements without requiring to login. However, to protect your privacy, you required you register as a member in order to post a new or respond to an Ad.

Membership on is absolutely FREE, and requires just a confirmation of your email address. You can choose your own profile-name aka avatar.  

If readers are interested in working on exciting embedded and web technologies, they can send their profile description / resume to [email protected]

 This is another paradigm of what two minds from a same city can do together professionally. Here it is not friendship but professional caliber and an urge to do something of your own. Both Harshad & Dr.Ameet have worked in different companies who paid them handsomely, but they always wanted to be their own BOSS.

All the best to the Duo.

  1. This is one good site for classified. This type of ventures are doing excellent in the market and days to come it is going to be a need for people. One example which comes to mind is a very famous portal and telephone classified service is JUST DIAL where you can ask for anything….Now Uproot is one just model which will create them a good revenue model, as uproot will be famous in coming days (hope you guys work hard for that) more ads will be placed by cos and businesses to put their ad 1st on the list of pages. So uproot will definitely grab these opportunity. Although paper classified ads are the market share holders, Internet classified will provide more custom made search which will definitely boost UP UPROOT…..

  2. Again Hats off to Administrator and Team of for your endeavour in social work and convinience of the Internet user esp. from our sweet Belgaum..

    Keep it up!
