your area of research is very interesting and Unique.
Yes it is true that most of the Job portals are selling the resume download options to either companies or consultants. It is their business model. But what is not acceptable is the authenticity of those resumes. On one hand consultancies uses this information to get the candidates registered for a fee and some may even use this data for telemarketing ( Yes it is true!)
We can not blame the information provider. But what we need to look at is what is the actual success rate ..
I am also running a career management Company in Bangalore .. we never use such mass data base.
We have developed our own tool to match the responsive behaviours to the Job profile.
Which we feel is most accurate method of identifying the right talent
Good luck for your research

Thank you for your kind words and views on how the consultants are charging candidates and misusing data without their permission I assume. I also visited your website and found the skill quotient test and the blog posts very interesting. With your vast experience, it would be great if you could shed some more light on the job market and a prominent reason behind the frequent mismatch of the job posting and the job seeker.
