The Nepalese people are more religious where they spend much of their time worshipping to Gods and follow their culture and traditions. This worship is also known as ‘Puja’ in Nepali. Puja is conducted from when a person is born till he dies. Various kinds of pujas conducted in Nepal throughout the lifetime of an individual. All these are celebrated by the people. Hence there is a need for Brahmins and different kinds of materials that are used during the puja, also called puja samagri. Traditionally, there were enough Brahmins that conducted these kinds of pujas, some were known by the family, some were referred to by the relatives or friends. However, these days Brahmins are hard to find, and on the other hand people are too busy because of their working life and aren’t able to manage time which makes it viable for a business like Puja Sewa to flourish.

There are traditional competitors like family brahmins, jyothisis, puja samagri retailers/wholesalers, location specific and small-scale brahmin and puja services providers which have been catering to people so far. Their services are comparatively cheap on average but not integrated and they do not offer any booking services. Their market reach is also limited which is evidenced by a lack of a single active website or facebook page. Puja Sewa plans to fill this gap by being a reliable, cost-effective and online service provider. There is not a single online Brahmin and Puja services provider so far in the market. If Puja Sewa can market itself aggressively in the first year itself, its market presence would be firmly established, which any competitor wouldn’t be able to grab. However, there are chances that few traditional service provider may start their own services if Puja Sewa succeeds, inspired by its success. Jyotish Service is cheap and available everywhere. Even online Jyotish Services are available. This is where Puja Sewa will face a tough competition. However, the need for Jyotish Service is worldwide. Puja Sewa can target international market and offer services under $ 5. In the domestic market, Puja Sewa plans to offer Online Jyotish services for free to attract prospective clients and as an embedded service.
