Users could get listings from a wide range of categories such as restaurants, pubs, shopping malls, hospitals, schools, tailors, banks, health and fitness, and 24-hour pharmacies.

Users can write reviews, leave footprints, mark businesses on the map, add listings or events on Yahoo! India Local.

Local businesses across categories can now get listed for free on Yahoo! India Local. When users search for those categories, the businesses could get discovered.
