Yesterday we registered our 1000th customer. And today I got this from Google:
"This is a notification that your application, hi4hi Matrimony, with package ID com.hi4hi.mobile, has been removed from the Google Play Store.
REASON FOR REMOVAL: Violation of the paid and free provision of the Content Policy and section 3.3 of the Developer Distribution Agreement.
All violations are tracked. Serious or repeated violations of any nature will result in the termination of your developer account, and investigation and possible termination of related Google accounts. If your account is terminated, payments will cease and Google may recover the proceeds of any past sales and/or the cost of any associated fees (such as chargebacks and transaction fees) from you.
If your developer account is still in good standing, you may revise and upload a policy compliant version of your application as a new package name. Before uploading any new applications, please review the Developer Distribution Agreement and Content Policy.
If you feel we have made this determination in error, you can visit the Google Play Help Center article for additional information regarding this removal.

With shaadi.com and jeevansathi.com apps still in the app store, and charging money for membership, I find it completely uncalled for.
Anyways, we will be putting up the APK on the website so that users can directly download and install the app. We are also working on browser only version of the app so that we don't have to go through app store. As as bonus, we will be available on all mobile phones that have browser.
Hang on for a week.
