What is Ketto?
Ketto is Asia’s largest online crowdfunding platform. The purpose of Ketto as a donation-based crowdfunding platform to fill a growing void, within the age-old Indian culture of giving grew on to become a revolution.
When was Ketto Founded?
Varun Sheth founded Ketto on December 12, 2012, and since then it has changed the lives of thousands of people who have interacted through it. Varun Seth united with Bollywood actor and humanitarian Kunal Kapoor and Zaheer Adenwala. They added a powerful blend of techno-disruptor vision giving Ketto precedence over other crowdfunding platforms.
At its very roots crowdfunding is an activity of amassing funds from a large number of people.

What is the verification, documentation & payment withdrawal process on Ketto?
In this stage, the campaigner has limited access to the product features and other crowdfunding benefits.
Ketto verifies each and every medical fundraiser submitted on the platform. Only upon successful verification, Ketto approves the fundraiser and allows the campaigner to withdraw funds.
A team of dedicated and professional compliance executives perform deep verification that includes
- cross-checking medical reports submitted by the campaigner. In the event of the documents being incorrect/fake/invalid/forged, etc the team coordinates with the campaigner to make sure only recent and valid documents are submitted.
- For the withdrawal process, Ketto primarily prefers to transfer funds to the patient Hospital’s account. In the circumstances wherein the hospital documents cannot be uploaded by the campaigner, the funds are only then transferred to the patient’s account. The verification here includes a basic Address, Bank and Pan KYC check.
- To ensure the highest level of security, Ketto follows a 3 layer check in the payout compliance thus ensuring minimal fault events. Only once these checks are completed, the campaigner are then eligible to put a withdrawal request for the funds collected.
Post this step, the funds are transferred to the approved bank account within 2-5 business days.
