  • Paytm said that it will be on-boarding 1.5 million merchants from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in the next six months and it is targeting to double the business growth in these states within a year.

    “We confirm the development that Sonia has joined SAIF as corporate communications adviser to help portfolio companies," SAIF Partners said in a statement. Paytm is one of SAIF’s top portfolio companies, and the fund owns an about 18% stake in it.

    Paytm has also launched its all-in-one Paytm QR into various utility items such as calculator, power bank, clock, pen stands and radio which merchants can use in their shop for daily requirement.

    It has recently launched All-in-One QR for merchants across the country to accept unlimited payments through Paytm Wallet, Rupay Cards and all UPI based payment apps directly into their bank account free of cost.

    The expansion would also involve tie-ups with leading car makers Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Honda, Kia, and MG Motor, offering pre-fitted Paytm FASTags at the time of vehicle purchase.

    Paytm on Wednesday said it was absolutely not interested in buying a stake in YES Bank. It instead is seeking small finance bank permit from the regulator, ET NOW reported quoting agencies. The private sector lender said it will hold a board meeting on Friday to consider and approve raising of funds.

    It would be crucial to see how consumers react to this change, as many use their credit cards to load money in their Paytm wallets for frequent use-case like paying taxi fares.

    FASTags are currently issued by 23 certified banks through various channels such as Point-of-Sale (POS) at National Highway toll plazas and select bank branches. They are also available on e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and on Paytm.

    The prebudget meeting on Friday was necessitated after the government waived off MDR for merchants on digital payments made through RuPay debit cards and Unified Payments Interface (UPI) devices from January 2020.
