<?
set_time_limit(0);
//set curl
$ch = curl_init();
$ckfile = "tmp/cookie.txt";
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, $ckfile);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, $ckfile);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,'http://search.justdial.com/');

http:// search.justdial.com/srch/all_indiasrch/all_india.php?page=1&companyname=a*&Allcity=All+India+Search

doesn't exist - the a* comes via form so it won't be recognised by $_GET.
From what I can see the search form under All cities in India can be stripped to the following:

<FORM METHOD='POST' name='justDial' action='search/search.php?srch=true' >
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="area" value="">
	<input id='txt2' type="text" readonly='1' name="city" value="All India Search" />
	<input type='radio' name='Stype' value='category' CHECKED >
	[B]<input type="text" id='txt1_cat' name="q" value="" autocomplete='off' >[/B] 
	<INPUT TYPE='submit' NAME='GO' VALUE='GO' ONCLICK="return Go_AllIndiaSearch('yes');">
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="sub" value=''>
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="result">
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="inter">
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="login_name">
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="login_pass">
	<input type='hidden' name='img_forget'>
	<input type='hidden' name='screen_name'>
	<input type='hidden' name='login_name1'>
	<input type='hidden' name='login_pass1'>
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="Allsearchtype">
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="Allcity">
	<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="AllIndiaSearch">
</FORM>

I assume the 'txt1_cat' field takes the "a*".

You probably got this far yourself, sorry, but I ain't got time to look further.
