Support OpIndia

The mainstream media establishment doesn’t want us to survive, but you can help us continue running the show by making a voluntary contribution. Please pay an amount you are comfortable with; an amount you believe is the fair price for the content you have consumed to date.

Please click on any of the buttons above to pay. The amount you enter should be in INR, though you may use an international card to process the transaction. The PayPal button supports an amount in US Dollars. Please click here to choose a currency other than US Dollars from a drop-down list.

If you want to use your preferred UPI app, our UPI ID is opindia@kotak (you can also scan the QR Code below to make a payment to this ID; please don’t send money to any other UPI ID or QR Code except those shared from official OpIndia accounts).

Support OpIndia by paying at opindia@kotak UPI ID

Important: to receive confirmation and details of your payment, please enter a valid email address when you are asked so. We don’t send OTPs to verify your email IDs or phone numbers to keep the process fast and simple, which means that there is a risk of a wrong input being recorded without warning. Please make sure you are not entering any wrong information, because that will make it difficult for us to answer any of your queries regarding your payment.

We are not putting our articles behind any paywall where you are asked to pay before you read an article. We are asking you to pay after you have read the article, if you are satisfied with the quality and our efforts.

However, this is not a donation. We are asking you to voluntarily pay for what you have already read or consumed. Please note that you will not be getting tax deductions as happens with donations. Additionally, we will pay taxes, as applicable, on what you contribute, because your payments are revenues for us.

Even a small amount that you decide to pay will strengthen our resources, and will help us sustain our operations. It costs us money to keep the website running, and we need your help to survive in this industry dominated and controlled by people who have no affinity for us.

With our belief and offered narrative being different from those of the mainstream media, we need to find a business model that is different from theirs, and this is one attempt, where your support is crucial. Thank you for your consideration.

FAQs about the payments:

Do you provide 80G certificate?

As explained above, we are a private limited company and we are not seeking donations, hence there is no 80G certificate i.e. your contributions are not tax-deductible. The entire process is like going through a ‘bypass-able paywall’ for accessing our content. Your contribution is booked as revenues in our accounts and we pay GST for that.

Do you provide invoices?

Our payment partners (Razorpay, Paytm, Paypal) would send you invoices on our behalf as soon as a successful payment is made. The same is recorded on our end too. If for some reason you need an invoice in a different format, say a GST compliant invoice with more details, please reach out to us via email at [email protected].

Do you provide refunds?

No. We are asking you to pay for content already consumed, so there are no refunds or cancellations applicable on one-time payments.

Would you return my money if I no longer support you?

We are sorry to have disappointed you, and we’d encourage you to write to us so that we see your point of view. However, we can’t return your earlier payment as those were in lieu of work already done by us at the time you made the payment. We ask people to make a payment only if they are happy with our past work.

I want to make regular contributions. Do you have subscription or membership plans?

Thank you for considering us worthy of your regular patronage. Right now, we don’t have subscription or membership plans, but we plan to introduce those soon.

I want to make a direct payment. What are your bank account details?

Account name: Aadhyaasi Media And Content Services Private Limited

Is there any other way to offer monetary support to you? Do you accept cash?

The ways and modes of payments mentioned on this page are the only official ways through which we accept payments. Please don’t pay anyone in cash claiming to represent us or don’t transfer money online to any UPI ID or bank account advertised anywhere else on the internet as belonging to OpIndia or its holding company.
