Doosra is a Hyderabad based start-up through which you can get a second phone number on your existing SIM card.
It all started when one day, Founder CEO Aditya Vuchi was asked to provide his phone number to a global sporting retail chain in order to complete his purchase transaction. It got him thinking about the innumerable places he had to provide his phone number and how it put his privacy at a massive risk. After many sleepless nights spent brainstorming, it was very clear that something had to be done. And thus, Doosra was born.
