Kaagaz Scanner App is the best alternative of Chinese app “CamScanner”, Which was a highly popular app for scanning and storing documents, which has been banned by the Indian government  as part of the 59 Chinese apps that were banned for data and privacy concerns.

Kaagaz app has the exact same function and  features like chinese app CamScanner but it is a homegrown app. CamScanner was banned in light of its ties to China.

Since CamScanner was largely used to scan personal documents, storing of all kind of documents on the cloud server of an appplication which was  hosted in China has deemed as a security violation.

That is why  ‘Kaagaz Scanner ’ aims to cash in on, and fill the space left open by CamScanner  marketing an ‘Indian alternative’.

Talking about the application via a LinkedIn post, Gaurav Shrishrimal, the founder of Kaagaz Scanner app  said,

“We built Kaagaz Scanner as a side project after the call of our Prime Minister for ‘Vocal For Local’ and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’. As soon as we got the news of Chinese apps being banned, we started pushing the app in all of our WhatsApp groups and social media feeds. We were lucky to be picked by a few big influencers, which gave us the initial push. That, coupled with a simply, easy to use product, started increasing our install numbers.”
