Payment Details:

We pay by the audio hour, i.e. INR 400 per audio hour. By that what we mean is if you take an audio of 60 minutes and work on it for 8 hours to transcribe it, we will only be paying you INR 400 for the 60 minutes of audio and not for the whole 8 hours you spent working on it.

Example 1: If say you have taken up an audio which is 11 minutes and 26 seconds, we will pay you INR – 75.06 for it (11.26 mins * 6.66 INR per minute).

Example 2: If say you have taken up an audio which is 68 minutes and 45 seconds, we will pay you INR – 456.33 for it (68.45 mins * 6.66 INR per minute)

We pay you in any Bank Account (Indian) by NEFT that is online transfers.

We pay net 30 days from the date of invoice. But we understand that you need to develop trust on us for this so initially for the first 2 weeks we will pay you weekly, you have to make a time-sheet each Monday for all the work done in the previous week and we will clear it by Friday. Post this we would love to get you on our Monthly pay system.

We deduct a TDS of 1% on all our payments.

Note: We will take a 5 minutes transcription test to check if you are good for the same work. The test results will be communicated to all the applicants through an email. The candidates that are not shortlisted due to quality concerns would not be eligible for reapplication.
