Paytm Pauped Investors, Shares Fell More Than 13 Percent


Shares of One 97 Communications Ltd, which operates the Paytm brand, fell over 13 per cent on Monday. The Reserve Bank of India ( RBI ) has barred Vijay Shekhar Sharma from opening new accounts amid ‘content monitoring concerns’ seen in Paytm Payments Bank, the digital payments platform of Vijay Shekhar Sharma.

The Reserve Bank said that the opening of new customers’ accounts of Paytm Payments Bank would be subject to specific permission given by RBI after reviewing the report of IT auditors.
