This will be in addition to the 86 POPSK declared by the Ministry of External Affairs in the first phase.

This is an initiative launched by the Ministry of External Affairs and the Department of Posts jointly. Sushma said that after coming to power, the NDA government has opened 16 passport services centres and given priority to the North-Eastern states. He said that since coming to power in May 2014, the NDA government had put together a total of 251 passport service centres and POPSKs. Earlier, there were 77 passport service centres in the country.

The minister said that when she took charge of the ministry, she realised that ‘proximity’ is the biggest obstacle in applying for a passport. She said, “We have set a goal that no one has to travel more than 50 kms to make a passport. She said that in the third phase more POPSK would be opened.

Bangalore, March 06, 2017: Juno Clinic (Davman Technology Services Pvt. Ltd.) an online and offline start-up focused on mental health counseling and treatment, has raised Rs. 8 crores from well-known serial entrepreneur Atul Nishar (Founder of Hexaware Technologies & Aptech Computers), the family office of Sunita and Neeraj Bhargava (Founder of Zodius Capital), Vikas Khemani (President & CEO, Edelweiss Securities Limited) and other individual investors as a part of a Pre-Series A fund raising round.

According to recent estimates by The Lancet Study, in India only 1 in 10 people with mental health disorders receives evidence-based treatment. The biggest challenge that stops people from seeking professional help for issues such as depression, anxiety or relationship conflicts is the social stigma attached with seeking help from professionals. Further, there is a dearth of trained professionals in India as most psychiatrists and psychologist operate only in the top metros. Understanding the need gap, the Company launched its online counseling clinic (www.juno.clinic) in January 2016, that allows counseling through online video connection, phone or chat, and has also started offline counseling clinics in Mumbai, with the first two clinics set up in Khar and Powai.

Juno Clinic, which started as a brain child of Davesh Manocha, Anuraag Srivastava, Arun Kumar and a renowned psychiatrist Dr. Vishal Sawant in Jan 2016, operates on a unique model that provides online (video/telephonic/chat) counseling as well as in-person counseling out of their clinics in Mumbai. The Company is not an aggregator for service providers but hires senior psychologists and psychiatrists full time, all of whom adhere strictly to American psychiatry protocols. The company currently has a medical team of 35.

Speaking on the funding, co-founder Davesh Manocha said, “We are privileged to have such seasoned investors believe in Juno Clinic. The company will use the funding proceeds to expand into both domestic and international markets online, increase the physical footprint within India and launch new B2B based products offerings that will ensure comprehensive solutions to all mental health problems.”

“We believe that only through the full-stack model, where we employ our medical team can ensure quality clinical services promise to our customers. We have a top class medical team, which gets further training on important aspects of online counseling”, Anuraag Srivastava co-founder of the Company added.

Online counseling holds a lot of promise, as it overcomes the barriers that usually prevent people from seeking treatment, such as social taboo, lack of access to quality therapists and hectic schedules. Further, the anonymity and comfort of not being seen by anyone makes it a compelling proposition for those who want counseling but are unable to get that.
