ChangeBhai, touted by The Economic Times as an innovator that could change your future, is a product of Change22 Infotech Private Limited. A beta version of ChangeBhai was launched in April 2014 as a ‘ground issues reporting utility’. The users could use the ChangeBhai website and app to report urban issues such as potholes, garbage dumps , stray menace, encroachment etc.
The concept was widely accepted and written about, particularly due to a very strong word of mouth publicity. ChangeBhai is the Episode Winner & Grand Finalist of NDTV’s ‘The Next Big Online Business Idea’, hosted by Rajiv Makhni(Host-Tech Talk, Cell Guru) and judged by the who's who of the online world including Sanjeev Bhikchandani(Founder of naukri.com, 99acres.com, jeevansaathi.com etc.), Saurabh Srivastava (Past Chairman - NASSCOM, NIA Member, Founder (IAN) & Rajiv Sodhi (MD-GoDaddy).

ChangeBhai is the finalist of NASSCOM's ambitious initiative 10,000 startups and finalist of The Economic Times' Catapooolt Changemakers Challenge, recognized as the top 30 disruptive ideas of India.ChangeBhai has recently come on board IUDX (India Urban Data Exchange), an ambitious program launched by the Indian Government under The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) for the development of 100 Smart Cities.

It will not only help one highlight such oft ignored issues but also help a layman compare infrastructure of areas and around certain points (hotels, realty projects etc.) to make informed decisions of buying or renting a house or say, booking a hotel or say, even passing by that locality on our way to work each day. .
