Online citizen engagement platform, LocalCircles, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Puneet Dalmia, Managing Director of Dalmia Group.

The raised capital will be used to expand LocalCircles’ services to more causes and citizens. Also, Dalmia will join company’s existing investors and advisors, Anand Mahindra (Mahindra Group Chairman), Nadir Godrej (M.D. Godrej Industries) and RC Bhargava (Maruti Chairman).

Delhi-based LocalCircles enables citizens to connect with national and local governance. It enables them to connect with causes ranging from civic issues, finding emergency assistance, law & order, local & national governance and more.  

LocalCircles was launched in 2013 by a founding team comprising of Sachin Taparia, K Yatish Rajawat, Mukesh Gupta and Abhishek Gupta.

Talking about LocalCircle, Dalmia said, “What makes it highly relevant is that any public leader or corporate can easily connect with its constituents or customers using LocalCircles, understand issues better, resolve them and stay connected with the collective pulse in real time.”

Prior to this, in December last year, LocalCircles had raised funding from Mahindra Group Chairman, Anand Mahindra.
