As many as 60% of Indian women look for their better halves outside their own caste, claims a recent study.

Banihal, a neuroscience-based recommendation engine for finding life partners, conducted a survey involving over 6,000 users.

According to the findings, one out of two women went for men who have a joint family system.

Going beyond looks, six out of 10 women were open to connecting with profiles of men without images.

The match-making website has users consisting of 40% women. It was also observed that when it comes to approaching or starting a conversation, women have become more prompt in initiating a conversation with men.

Giving education prime importance, 85% of women send a request to men who hold at least a Bachelor’s degree.
