Hindi term or phrase: उपयोक्ता
I came across this word recently which was used for the word users. I just wondered that whether this word is grammatical or the new discovery / creativity.

If it is the new discovery then whether this meaning is right?

Thanks in advance.

I am not sure, but if it is a new discovery, it makes a lot of sense with words like
उपभोक्ता - उपभोग करनेवाला
प्रयोक्ता - प्रयोग करनेवाला
Though I can't find it in the dictionary that I own. However, the correct word I believe is उपयोगकर्ता.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I do not see any relation between Upyokta and the word 'user'. Also Upyukta stands for meaning useful in Sanskrit.

उपयोक्ता/ उपभोगता

i have come across the term उपयोक्ता, a few times and it does sound correct. I personally feel it is another way of putting across the word 'उपभोगता'
