1. Profiles
This section contains information about the profiles of the members. You can learn more about the members by clicking on the hyperlinked names. Based on few criteria the profiles of the members are divided into four distinct categories. Guru , Gyani, Gyan shiromoni and Gyan samrat.

Criteria to become members
• Membership is open to any company, organisation or other body with an interest to know about India.

How do we categorize the member?
• On his frequency. Frequency is an important part in categorizing a member. The total count of how frequent he has logged in is taken into consideration whilst categorizing.
• On his contributions. This is yet another parameter to rate a member as his categorisation to a large extent depends on the amount of his contributions.
• On the quality of his contributions. Its just not the quantity, the quality of his contribution is an equally important parameter in determining the category of the member.
• On his voluntary action. We appreciate members taking voluntary action by commenting on the different articles published at the main Indianetzone.com
