India Sourcing

“Using our unique approach, Chiketa’s comprehensive sourcing campaigns reach qualified companies, whether they are actively, passively or currently not looking for an order.

To ensure that your suppliers are selected from a robust database that is deep and diverse, we reach into the interiors of India, find qualify and then introduce you to the suppliers who are not necessarily found on the web.

The alternatives are to resort to buying agents who may or may not be specialized in the products sourced. They will most likely also outsource the quality and project management aspects.

When it comes to sourcing from India, Chiketa stands apart from other potential sources.

Chiketa has the resources to specialize in the area of quality control and project monitoring.”


India Sales

“Our knowledge and experience in India as well as our exposure to US and Western cultures allows us to offer effective services in sales and marketing in India.

The effects of globalization in India has resulted in a burgeoning middle class with significant purchasing power. McKinsey (The ‘Bird of Gold’: The Rise of India’s Consumer Market) projects India as becoming the 5th largest consumer economy by 2025 (up from the current level of 12th place) with almost 600 million middle-class consumers. US companies already in India are reaping the rewards of this phenomenon.

Chiketa can promote your Company or Product through several levels of support for marketing in India.”

Chiketa’s Team

We Are A Team Of Industry Experts

Chiketa, LLC, was founded on a simple concept, which was conceived in the mid to late 1990’s, by two young entrepreneurial spirited Indians, Rahul Sarkar and Arup Sinha Roy.(Rahul has been based in the US since 1986 while Arup has been and continues to be based in India.)

The concept was that the vast skilled manpower base, underutilized technical resources and the latent industrial prowess in the small and medium enterprises that existed throughout India could be made accessible to the small to mid-sized companies in the West. To put things in perspective, in those days, the terms outsourcing, BPO, KPO, etc were still relatively uncommon in India or even the West. Today Chiketa is involved in global sourcing, although the company specializes in India outsourcing. It is among the leading India sourcing company.

Why cater to only small to mid-sized Western companies and not larger players such as General Motors, Ford, LG Electronics, Samsung, Sony, Amway, Tupperware, Pepsico, McDonald’s, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Aviva, Nortel, Nokia?

The latter have their own operations in India and are even contemplating product diversification, setting up their manufacturing operations in India, increasing the existing production capacity, establishing research centers in India, etc. Such in-country ventures and ambitious endeavors are not so easily undertaken by small to medium enterprises (SME’s) on their own.

That’s Chiketa
