Begaluru: Plan My Medical Trip Pvt. Ltd, a platform that lists medical care options for international patients, said it raised Rs.1.25 crore in funding from three angel investors—Bhanu Vikram Parsotam, Rohan Desai and Paras Patel.

“I have been a part of the healthcare sector in the US for close to two decades now. So, I am familiar with patient requirements here and strongly believe that PlanMyMedicalTrip.com is doing the right thing at the right time. Together with the PlanMyMedicalTrip.com representatives, I’m positive that we will be able to boost healthcare facilities across the globe,” said investor Bhanu Vikram Parsotam in a statement.
