Paytm will reduce dependence on Paytm Payments Bank
Vijay Shekhar Sharma said that One Communications 97 and Paytm Payment Services Limited are ready to transfer their nodal accounts to another bank. He said that this action of RBI will not have any impact on marketing business services. There was a ban on adding new customers two years ago. Due to this we started working with other banks. We will continue to reduce our dependence on Paytm Payments Bank. Also, we will fully follow every instruction of RBI.
Efforts are being made to reduce the impact of the decision
Company President Bhavesh Gupta said that we are ensuring that the RBI decision has minimal impact on the merchants. Facilities like FastTag provided by other banks will continue to be available on Paytm app. We are working closely with all our partners. This decision will not have any impact on equity and insurance. Major changes will have to be made in the All in One QR code of Paytm Payments Bank. We are in talks with other banks and will soon be in front of you with answers to every question.
