The startup expects to use the funding to enhance its analytics technology and expand operations. The technology-based platform, that allows parents to search and compare schools, and then apply for admissions, is set to launch its operations from January 9. Just Dakhila will first cover schools in the Delhi region, where the annual admission process has just started, and will later expand its operations to other cities. Gupta was group director of New Saraswati House (I) Pvt Ltd for 10 years. The firm was later acquired by S Chand Group of Publications. “We got Rs 150 crore from S Chand Group – out of which I am investing Rs 5 crore in Justdakhila.com,” Gupta told Techcircle.in. Gupta also comes in as co-founder of Just Dakhila. “The current landscape of Indian demographics pulled me to invest in the concept of aggregating the parents and schools ecosystem. I’ve got 15 years of experience in the education sector, and I see lot of potential in Just Dakhila,” said Gupta. Easy Analytics Pvt Ltd, which owns Just Dakhila, was founded by Kapil Mittal. Mittal has over 10 years of experience in the ed-tech space. He has worked with major ed-tech startups including Educomp Learning Hour Pvt Ltd and Eduwizards serving at mid and senior level management. “We will be launching pilot in January 2016 in Delhi.
