In the March 2024 quarter, Paytm’s sales employee headcount dropped by about 3,500 to 36,521 personnel on a quarter-on-quarter basis, This came after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) banned several services of Paytm Payments Bank barring the Paytm associate from accepting deposits, credit transactions or top-ups in any customer accounts, wallets, and FASTags.

In Quarter 4, the company reported a loss of 550 crore which was 167.5 crore in the same period a year ago.

Paytm further said, “As part of its FY24 earnings release, One97 Communications stated that it will be pruning its non-core business lines, and will continue its efforts to maintain a leaner organisation structure through AI-led interventions. The company has been actively working towards driving profitability, in line with its guidance.”
