Delhi-based edtech startup NoPaperForms has raised about Rs 5.66 crore from Info Edge in an all-cash deal.

Info Edge, which runs internet properties such as Naukri, Shiksha, 99acres, and Jeevansathi among others, also picks up a minority stake of 27.92% in the software-as-a-service (SaaS) firm, reported VCCircle.

Launched by Vishal Shah and Ami Damani, NoPaperForms was originally part of online career counselling and education services firm Careers360, which acquired it in 2015 for an undisclosed amount. In June, Careers360 sold the venture to its chief strategy officer Naveen Goyal in a cash-and-equity deal worth around $3 million.
