With Sleuths India, however, you needn’t worry ever as we’re a President’s award-winning private detective agency with a strong pan-India presence and offices in major cities of the country. We’re a different breed altogether as our MD, Naman Jain is a multiple award winning professional (having won the 'Young Investigation Entrepreneur Award' By the President of India, 2012 & the "Investigation Entrepreneur of the Year Award" for 2014 by MoS, Ministry of Home Affairs) while our management team comprises ex-Army, R & AW, Intelligence Bureau and Police officers. More importantly, we are a member of prestigious associations such as APDI, WAD, ASSOCHAM, PHD Chambers of Commerce, CII (Confederation of Indian industry), NASSCOM, DMA (Delhi Management Association).

Is there any written agreement or contract between two of us?
As a leading detective agency, our focus is always on following a professional approach to investigation and having a reliable methodology in place with the entire affair of the things. That’s why every investigation from us is properly documented with clearly defined terms and rules. Naturally, there will be a written understanding between both the parties, i.e., Sleuths India and the client.

We will first send you an email proposal detailing the exact scope of investigation, time frame and charges. And after you have accepted the email proposal, you will have to fill up an Investigation Requisition Form (IRF) and submit back to us. The IRF form will contain your details, subject’s details, purpose of investigation and the requirement of investigation. You have to send it back along with your identity proof.

How much do your charge?
Each case that comes to us is somewhat unique in terms of the complexities involved with them, hence charges too would vary. In fact, our charges depend on a lot of factors like kind of case, circumstances behind the case, gender, locality, the strata of society involved with the case and so on. We can tell exact charges only after analyzing the area of difficult of the case, and only after having discussed the case with the client.

Why Sleuths India charges more than other mediocre companies?
Sleuths India is an extremely reliable detective agency and this reliability carries the price. We’re not like those small agencies that often lure customers with low prices and then either do shoddy work or dupe their clients – some even stop taking calls immediately after receiving the payment! Similarly, customers often fail to see the deceit behind the “low price’ strategy employed by most small detective agencies.

Naturally, companies that often charge low are bound by their limitations of the infrastructure, resources, network, team and track record etc. On the other hand, we are a top agency with expert sleuths who commit themselves completely in the case to ensure success irrespective of the complexity involved. Our experts always gather the best possible evidence and information with every case as they are highly skilled with years of experience with us.

And yes, our name speaks for quality and we’re the most trusted private detective agency in India for a reason. While our team is supervised by senior ex-Army, IB, Police and R & AW officers, the gadgets and equipment we use are the most supplicated types with our high-quality infrastructure and resources unmatched in the industry. Similarly, we’re guided by an MD – Mr. Naman Jain – who is a President’s award winning professional, and we also enjoy a clientele including business tycoons, politicians and celebrities.

What is the mode of payment and what is the payment schedule?
We accept payment through all popular modes such as Cheque, Cash, Credit/ Debit card, Online Transfer, Google Pay, Paytm, BHIM UPI. You can make payment through any other mode that feels convenient to you.

The whole payment has to be made upfront.

Why pay upfront?
We take full advance payment as we’re a reputed detective agency – with over two decades of experience – and enjoy a track record of delivering on our promises. Our advance payment rule is a reflection of the trust and support we enjoy in the market as, over the years, we have made a mark in the industry and gained the confidence of clients for the value and quality we adhere to. Similarly, taking full advance payment has been a uniform policy of the company since the inception and in fact, a huge chunk of our turnover (which is into multiple of crores annually) comes from the advance payment itself.

And upon the payment, you shall be given the complete invoice and the receipt mentioning the complete scope of investigation. It’s applicable to all the clients.

Are your investigation supported with evidences?
We are known for scientific and unmatched investigation backed with evidences. We use the most high-edge and cutting-edge gadgets, spy camera and equipment to gather evidence under any circumstances. But yes, whether to have evidence or not with a case is something that is always totally dependent on the client’s requirements. While some clients need only the information with their cases, others may also need evidences supporting that information. And yes, evidence-based investigation is costlier than those with information as they need more effort. So, it’s always the discretion of the clients to hire which types of services.

Will you become a witness in the court of law? Or, will you provide your testimony in the court of law?
As a private detective agency, our job is to gather information and evidence to help clients with their cases and ensure the best of results with any type of investigation. While it’s up to clients to use the information/evidence as a material in the court of law, we as a detective agency do not become a witness in the court of law. Since we do several cases in a month, it’s not possible for us to become a witness in the court for clients. And if we provide testimony in the court of law our identity can be exposed in front of the subject (which is against the rules of the trade) and may also cause enmity.

What is the qualification/experience of your detectives?
We have the largest team of investigators in India, and are perhaps the only agency in the country with female sleuths making a sizeable chunk of the team. The senior management of company comprises people with long experience with the police, army, IB and Research & Analysis Wing (RAW). Our team has people from legal background, forensic experts who work collectively to do investigation. Qualifications may be different of our detectives but they are highly skilled and experienced and work with us for a number of years.
