When a pipe is leaking or walls need painting, you’ll need all the patience you can muster. Most Indian workmen who are hired for odd jobs don’t speak English, rarely arrive when they’re supposed to, probably don’t have the correct tools or training, and may or may not get the job done correctly the first time. If you can fix something yourself, then do so. If not, try to have your maid or someone who can speak Hindi around when workmen come to your home.
Finding someone in your area to get an odd job done on time and correctly is a challenge. Try the companies listed below. Your real estate agent might be able to send someone or give you a referral, or you can ask for recommendations from your neighbors and other expats. The society for your building may also have a list of tradespeople.
