EasyGov, a Noida-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) startup that helps users avail themselves of social welfare benefits, has raised an undisclosed amount in angel funding led by Tata Trusts-backed Social Alpha.

Google India managing director Rajan Anandan, Navayuga Group’s Rajeev Ahuja and other angels also invested in the round that was raised through online fund-raising platform LetsVenture, a company statement said.

EasyGov’s Aadhaar stack-based entitlement engine helps people check all the central and state government benefits they are eligible for. The portal also helps users apply for passport and voter ID, among other documents.

Surajya Services Pvt. Ltd, which runs EasyGov, claims to have processed over 10,000 service requests in the last 12 months in Delhi-NCR alone. It clocked a revenue of over Rs 25 lakh in the last financial year.

The company was founded by Amit Shukla and Vineet Verma in 2015. Shukla previously worked with Accenture, KPMG and Wipro Consulting while Verma has been associated with Dbydx Softwares, CSC and Rational Bits Technologies in the past.

EasyGov is also backed by NASSCOM 10,000 Start-ups. Besides, it was among the 15 ventures chosen by Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center for its Milestone Makers India programme.

Social Alpha is an ecosystem architecture created by the Foundation for Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship to nurture start-up teams. The initiative is supported by Tata Trusts.

Google India’s Rajan Anandan is an active investor in early-stage technology companies. He has made seven investments in the first half of calendar year 2017. Anandan, who has been an angel investor since 1991, has backed ventures across India, the US and Sri Lanka.
