The Chinese app ban in India led to the rise of many Indian apps to support the 'Vocal for Local' initiative and Kaagaz Scanner is one of those apps. The app acts as an Indian alternative to the now-banned CamScanner app and has recently achieved a milestone of one million downloads on the Google Play Store in less than 2 months. Read on to know more about the app.

The app is developed by IITians Gaurav Shrishrimal, Snehanshu Gandhi and Tamanjit Singh Bindra and made its entry on June 15. Apart from achieving a million downloads and a rating of 4.2 stars on the Google Play Store, the Kaagaz Scanner app also got a special mention from the Ministry of Education in the #AatmaNirbharBharat App Innovation Challenge. Additionally, the app has attracted some angel round findings too.
Kaagaz Scanner is an Indian document scanning app that can convert any image to PDF and can scan IDs, bills, books, assignments, official documents, handwritten notes, and more.
