Data entry requires you to atleast have 10th Pass as educational qualification. You need to be good at typing english. And also the more good you are input of that language the better. In case of data entry the accuracy counts more. Also do note that such jobs don't pay well. At the most they are going to pay the internet bill and that is all they are good for. You can find such jobs from startups, freelance sites and classifieds. Avoid doing the captcha jobs if possible. As captcha jobs don't pay well and returns are horrible.

Data entry jobs require good typing speed in English typing (at least 30 w.p.m) along with high level of accuracy. Generally there is no hard and fast rule regarding educational qualification for data-entry jobs; the job-providers generally prefer persons with at least 10+2 standard. But this can easily be relaxed if the candidate is a very fast and accurate English typist.
Data entry jobs are available at start-up ventures, educational sites (study materials related) and advertising sites. The payment at initial stage is not very good. It improves along with the concerned person's experience and also depends on the bargaining power.

I am the questioner.

Thanks Parth and Mahesh for responding. I took a few online typing tests and found that my average typing speed is 60 WPM and also one of these tests has shown that the maximum speed is more than 70 words per minute.

I am good in online research as well the English skills.

May I please have some sites or portals to start with? Expert advice required.
