One can avail Taparia’s services, through her website Sima Taparia.net. The website provides information on every component of the package, including member registration information as well as a collection of documents and information related to choosing a spouse.

She matches you with someone based on your preferences and way of life. The horoscopes or “kundalis” are then matched, and then the families are contacted. A meeting is scheduled when the families have given their approval, and Sima Taparia’s team helps make the meeting run smoothly.

During an interview with Condé Nast Traveller India, Taparia said, “I go and meet the boy and the family, see what their home is like, where they work, where they have been to school. This helps me assess their lifestyles so I can recommend a match that is on an even keel.”

Additionally, she explained, “This is where Tinder, Bumble, and Shaadi.com can’t compete. I get to the bottom of things, finding out all the inside stories, the family’s values, and other such details you would never get from looking at a person’s online profile.” 

“I only work with high-profile clients. In India when I meet clients, they usually have a working wedding budget in mind. So based on that golden number, I quote the price that I charge as a lump sum,” she added.
