28. Do I get work continuously every month? 
Bulk of the work originates from different library. As mentioned and discussed earlier these companies are more concerned with the quality, accuracy & punctuality of the delivery. Universal Info Service procures this assignment with specific responsibility and within specific time frame. We also in due course set a specific time frame with our members to execute the job and see that the job is  completed in a specified month well in advance to check and cross check it before completion. These conditions are to maintain our professional attitude and prompt services, which in return brings us more jobs / assignment. Our reputation is fairly high among the various vendors and library from where we pick up jobs. If we are not satisfying there requirements we will fall back in this fast moving world and new company will take over. Hence we try to maintain our reputation and are always in look out for sincere and hard working people who are eager to grow fast with us.
This concept to have a regular supply of work and to keep a good reputation in the circuit of proof reading jobs we are serious about the recruit.  During registration, we try to influence the same company’s concept. We do try to develop leaders and counseling is done. Among our registered participants we do have candidates who give us better output. We always stress accuracy with more submission of assignments that too in time and in phased manner. We do maintain a huge workforce to keep up with the pace of the job.
29. What are the rules for terminations of contract? 
If any operator is submitting less than the specified correct assignments in first 15 days, account will be terminated or warned as the case may be. The submission is of prime importance to us and this is made known to all registered personal.
If any operator is submitting less than the specified correct assignments in 30 days from the activation date, account will be terminated. The submission is of prime importance to us and this is made known to all registered personal.
If any of our registered data entry operator violates any of the terms & conditions of Universal Info service (UIS, India) than the account will be terminated. We will help you grow with us.
If operator is outsourcing or re distributing work to other people the account will be terminated. This has been discussed in detail in FAQ number 30.
30.  Can I outsource the work taken from your company?
No this is strictly prohibited. Outsourcing refers to getting things done from out house instead of getting them done in house. As the person attending or getting info from our company by registration will be issued username and password by our company. Moreover a person who is registering with us is also signing a contract papers. Redistribution of work leads to distribution of issued username and password. This may ultimately create a chaos. Again outsourcing or redistribution can lead to further change in rate contract etcetera misleading people. Ultimately this process spins out of the system tarnishing our company’s image. To stop such redistribution we have system to detect that more than one person using the same account to get into the unique account. We will easily detect if the work is submitted by more than 1 person and terminate the contract.
31.  How many accounts can I open? 
We will advice you to start slow and once one pick up the system. You can open 1 number of account in your name. Once you develop the required efficiency one can contact us for more than 6 accounts or for various other assignments.

Companies who offer data entry jobs never publish the details over internet. We also have a networking system for marketing department, as well as human resources.

 35. After registration how long I have to wait to start working?
