Impact of RBI restrictions on Paytm future plans.
Is this the end of PAYTM?

While the RBI’s restrictions on Paytm Payments Bank have significantly impacted the bank’s operations, it doesn’t necessarily signal the end of Paytm as a whole.

Paytm has stated that the RBI’s move does not affect user deposits in savings accounts, wallets, FASTags, and NCMC accounts. These services will continue to function normally. Paytm’s offline merchant payment network offerings like Paytm QR, Paytm Soundbox, Paytm Card Machine will also continue as usual, where it can onboard new offline merchants as well

Paytm has also indicated that it will accelerate its plans to move entirely to other bank partners, as it will be working only with other banks and not with Paytm Payments Bank Limited 

This suggests that Paytm is adapting to the new regulatory environment and planning for the future.

However, the RBI’s actions have certainly had serious implications for Paytm. Depending on the nature of the resolution, the company expects the RBI action to have a worst-case impact of Rs 300-500 crore on its annual EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) going forward.


In conclusion, while the RBI’s restrictions have affected Paytm Payments Bank, they may not necessarily lead to the end of Paytm. The company is adapting to the new regulatory landscape and continuing to provide certain services to its users. However, the full impact of these restrictions on Paytm’s overall business and market standing remains to be seen
