Paytm has formed partnerships with various banks and financial institutions, including Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, State Bank of India (SBI) and YES Bank.

The company’s stock fell after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) prohibited Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL) from accepting deposits, credit transactions, or top-ups in any customer accounts, wallets, and FASTags from March 15.

Following this, Paytm released its quarterly results in which the company’s loss widened to 550 crore owing to RBI’s ban compared to a loss of 167.5 crore in the same period the previous year. Additionally, Paytm’s revenue from operations declined by 2.8 percent to 2,267.1 crore in the reported quarter, down from 2,464.6 crore in the corresponding quarter of FY23.

Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma told shareholders, “We learned a lot of our lessons to become better and resilient. We also resolved to be fully compliant according to the regulators expectations in letter and spirit.”
