Background and Inception of the Company
Polama is a holiday comparison site, founded by M D Ramaswami and Dilip Panicker and went live on December 21, 2010.

M D Ramaswami and Dilip Panicker were classmates and alumni of IIT Madras. The passion of travelling decided them to come up with Polama and leverage their strong background to build an internet portal to make the process of searching for and comparing holiday option easier for users.
It was analyzed that over 80 percent of Indians plan their holidays using the internet, since it saves them time and effort. 99% of those who purchase holidays compare multiple options before buying a holiday. The available options are typically found by searching the internet using Google, Yahoo or Bing. Finding the options, making enough sense out of them to compare is time-consuming and painstakingly difficult.
