Given the fact that around 40% of the eCommerce business comes from consumers in Tier II and Tier III cities, sabsahaj.com would be a powerful enabler in bridging the digital divide between urban and rural consumers.

Knowing about the significant penetration of mobile telephony service in Rural India, the availability of the portal over mobile handsets is expected to be a game changer since it will transfer the power of consumption to the end user.

Another exciting contest being launched through the portal is an online singing talent hunt, where talented rural individuals can upload audio or video files of them singing to participate. This is Sahaj’s attempt to bring a convenient platform to all the hidden talent in Rural India to showcase their crooning skills and be known.
