Modern Employee Background Screening

Millow is an end-to-end Background Verification Company in India that specializes in establishing trust in an individual or company through stringent and automated background check processes in the shortest possible time and using strict data security protocols. Millow is derived from the Hindi word मिलो, which means " meet".

We live in a trust-deficit society, and Millow envisions a world where people can meet and socialize safely because we have verified them or enable them to verify each other. We help our clients gain sufficient data and evidence to make smarter human-centric decisions.

As one of the leading background check companies in India, Millow aims to eliminate easily preventable fraud for businesses and also for the most vulnerable sections of society. We believe people should not engage with one another, especially for business, on just 'a whim and a prayer'. We also hold that humans are not usually equipped to-- firstly, discover and then decipher deep insights from vast sources of data (pertaining to individuals) on their own.

That is why we have developed background verification and fraud prevention products/solutions for corporations, financial institutions, and the common man/woman at large. We have offices in Bangalore, Pune & Dehradun and we also have a pan-India presence of verification officers which enables us to cover all zip codes.

Background Verification:
History and Benefits

Background verification, synonymous with employee screening, allegedly came into existence after the 1908 incident in the U.S when a prank by an apprentice of a company resulted in the unfortunate death of his colleague. The company retained the employee and was later sued for negligent hiring

Background verification on potential employees are critical to the success of a company. Background verification can be as simple or as detailed as HR and upper management deems fit. Today, for example, companies require continuous background checks (quarterly) and even social media background checks to cover all bases. Human capital is the lifeblood of a company and it is important to ensure that the team being hired has the background, skills and integrity to fulfill the company's mission. A negligent hire is very costly to a company.

In this ‘new’ & ‘remote’ world, a detailed employee background verification in MNCs and even smaller enterprises is necessary. Millow stands above its peers as the most ethical and transformative employee background verification company in India. We are dedicated to offering all-inclusive and end-to-end background screening services.

Our motto for HR is "Set it and forget it". We have an outstanding in-house team of investigators and employee screening experts who are highly experienced in verifying the job applicant's background. Depending on the unique pre-employment screening needs of different companies, we offer a plethora of variations and verification methods to suit their desired TAT and level of stringency.

Now let us take a quick glance at some of the benefits of our background check services.

Best Background Validation Company in India



The Top 6 Benefits of Employee Background Verification

Negligent Hiring Lawsuit Avoidance

According to the American Management Association, 30% of all businesses fail because of theft at workplaces. As the pioneers in background checks for employees, we conduct effective & advanced background screening to reduce workplace theft, violence, fraud and hence we help create a safe and secure work environment. An organization that has negligent hiring practices risks irrevocable legal, reputational, and monetary damage.

Resume Fraud Avoidance

A stringent employee background check eliminates the selection of candidates who may have hidden criminal backgrounds, lied about their credentials, or even submitted fake marksheets & certificates. We conduct comprehensive database checks and field investigations to validate the claims of your employees so you can be sure of hiring the right candidate. We aim to empower companies and improve their hiring processes.

Compliance & Security

As one of the well-established and credible background verification companies in India, Millow designs reliable and compliant employee screening programs for cross-industry organizations to safeguard themselves from the legal backlash resulting from negligent hiring practices. Typically, ISO 27001 certified organizations must perform a background verification of their employees.


Cost Savings

The true cost of hiring a bad employee is more than meets the eye. A bad hire can result in huge productivity losses, damaged employee morale, fewer sales, and as per the U.S Department of Labor is as costly as 30% of an employee’s first-year salary. No supervisor wants to spend one day/week just micromanaging an underqualified employee who passed through the cracks. Hence, background verification can save the company thousands and even lakhs of Indian rupees and safeguard the company from hiring the wrong candidate.

Uphold Hiring Standards

Background verification is still nascent in India and the industry has low barriers to entry. Thus, organizations must choose the right background verification company that has the right credentials and experience in performing ‘by-the-book’ stringent verification of their employees so that the true picture of the employee is revealed, and the wrong candidate does not slip through the cracks.

Increase Employee Productivity

One bad apple spoils the bunch! Our customized background check programs reveal not just the integrity of the candidate but also dig out any history of undesirable workplace behavior by the candidate. Selecting even a highly qualified candidate who has a track record of being fired for not being a team player and/or being violent can be detrimental to an organization.

Why Choose Millow to Conduct Your Background Checks in India?

Background checks are slowly but surely losing the tag of being an emerging industry in India. With little oversight, lack of accreditation and low barriers to entry, the market was/is flooded with unscrupulous and unprofessional verification agencies. In a cost-conscious society, it is only natural to choose the "cheapest" service provider at the expense of authenticity, as background checks have been viewed more as a "checkbox", something that must be done for the sake of compliance.

However, HR departments, business owners and senior management now understand background checks, their benefits and even processes. Background checks are more than just a "check box," they are a risk mitigation function that is essential to any business.

As one of the best background verification companies in India, Millow offers the most reliable, compliant and cost-effective background check services by adhering to cutting-edge digital technologies and in-depth personal research that meets your business needs.

At Millow, we have an excellent panel of accomplished Background Check experts who have extensive expertise in the Background Check Services industry. Since our inception, Millow has become a pioneer in offering national and international background check solutions.

The Millow Advantage is as Follows:

User Experience and Company Branding

An ethos of fraud mitigation, empathy for the client and even the applicant is what drives Millow. An applicant is stressed and needs to be onboarded quickly. A bad background verification experience by the company's contracted agency can tarnish the employer's reputation and cause the candidate to move on to a competitor. Millow strives to provide a seamless and quick onboarding experience for the client's new employees, thereby maintaining and even enhancing the brand's reputation.

End-to-End Service

Companies and their HR departments should not be burdened with mundane tasks, especially when it comes to compliance, when there are reputable companies like Millow. Millow's platform was created with the motto "Set it and forget it" for HR departments. We can handle the entire background check process, starting with collecting documents/details directly from candidates using our proprietary bgv platform.

Proprietary Platform

Millow is a technology driven background verification company in India and has built its own background check platform. With the increasing digitization in India, technology can be used to conduct real-time background checks by issuing authorities. It can also reduce reliance on the traditional approach of physical visits, which are inherently time-consuming and sub-optimal.

Instant Background Checks

As a modern background verification company, Millow is constantly striving to take days and even hours out of the background check process. We are constantly adding smart features to our platform and training our staff to improve our processes. More automation and better operational efficiencies can reduce costs, which we can pass on to our clients.


Small businesses are often faced with the challenge of finding a background verification company in India. The typical process involved is:

  1. Contacting numerous vendors and inviting quotations
  2. Negotiating the good price and hiring the cheapest
  3. After finalizing the agreement, the company then realizes the problems with onboarding the cheapest priced vendor.
  4. The company requires a dedicated team to follow up with the vendor overs emails and phone calls for every candidate, as 90% of the background verification companies still operate in a traditional model with limited tech adoption.
Millow Makes Background Verification Easy

The advantage of Millow is that we offer an end-to-end background verification service in 3 steps:

  1. Register
  2. Enter info and upload images
  3. View the final report in a customized dashboard of your company on our app
