Paytm discontinues inter-company agreements

One97 Communications, the parent company of Paytm, said it has decided to discontinue various inter-company agreements with its associate Paytm Payment Bank. This comes ahead of the March 15 deadline set by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for Paytm Payments Bank to wind down key operations, including deposits, Wallet and more.

"Pursuant to Regulation 30 of the SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015, we wish to inform you that, the Board of Directors of the Company on March 01, 2024, at 07:28 A.M. (IST), through circulation, have approved the discontinuation of various inter-company agreements with its associate entity, Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL)," the company said in a statement.

It is worth noting that Paytm had announced earlier that it would partner with other banks and take measures to provide uninterrupted services to its customers and merchants.

Following the development, Paytm shares rose as much as 4 per cent after falling sharply for the past couple of trading sessions.

Paytm encountered trouble following the RBI's crackdown on the Paytm Payments Bank due to persistent non-compliance and ongoing material supervisory concerns. In a recent regulatory action, the central bank barred Paytm Payments Bank Limited from accepting fresh deposits or top-ups in customer accounts, wallets, FASTags, and other instruments after February 29, with the deadline later extended to March 15.
