Global Rollout

The company is considering expansion of its services in the global markets, especially in emerging markets, where the potential for such kind of services is high.

From what it seems like, Justdial’s US launch isn’t seeing any serious growth.

Justdial Global which has a license agreement with the parent company to operate in the US & Canada market through its subsidiary Justdial Inc has expressed its inability to operate in the US & Canada market.

The termination of the license agreement is under consideration. The license to  operate in all geographies will rest with Just Dial Limited post the termination.
