Mturk is another task site similar to Microworkers. I believe this is the site that was emulated by Microworkers and other task sites like them. Mturk was created 2001 but launched 2005 and is owned by Amazon. However, it only accepts members from US, Germany, Japan, India, UK, CA, China, France and Austria. Well, you could join since you're in India. Another site you can check is Minuteworkers which was launched last January 2010. This seems to be a copycat of Microworkers but is known to pay members up to this point. Anyone can join.
