Unable to interest the major portal players of the day, Umang Bagla and Varun Chatterji decided to make a go of it on their own. All they needed was a little cash to move out of the dorm — and to pay off the credit cards they had maxed out buying a terabyte of memory. So they wrote up a business plan, put their plans on hold, and ventured Lucknowcity.com on 02nd September 1998. The love affair between Lucknowcity and the technology community — engineers, programmers, webmasters, and early adopters of all shapes and sizes — went back to the days when word-of-mouth from tech-savvy users spread the reputation far beyond Lucknow.
Lucknowcity.com soon became popular among Lucknowites and gained top rankings in all major search engines including Google, MSN, Yahoo & Rediff. With the official launch of new features such as Yellow Pages, Classifieds, Matrimonial, etc., this site was officially launched by the then District Magistrate of Lucknow, Shri Navneet Sehgal.
