Fintech giant Paytm’s journey since its inception has been a remarkable one. As India’s leading payments and financial services company, Paytm has been instrumental in the country’s transition into a cashless economy. What sets it apart from other similar platforms is the fact that it is a homegrown brand, desi at heart. This was recently highlighted on Twitter by a user.

‘Umda Panktiyan’ shared a picture of a Bajaj Chetak scooter with a Paytm QR code on the microblogging site with the caption Swadeshi apnao (use Indian).

This was later retweeted by Paytm Founder Mr. Vijay Shekhar Sharma who hailed the new direction of a new India. In his tweet, Mr. Sharma said that this is the picture of an exalted India.

The image of the scooter with a Paytm QR code mirrors India’s growth into a digital payments powerhouse. From small roadside vendors to bigger showrooms in shopping malls, mobile and QR code based payments are accepted everywhere. The credit for taking India to such heights goes to Paytm that introduced India to digital payments.

This scooter with the Paytm QR code is a symbol of India that has become the 5th largest economy in the world. India’s growth in digital payments was recently highlighted by Germany’s Ambassador to India Mr Philip Ackerman who said that he was amazed at how digitisation has swept the country with people using smartphones to get through life.In fact, the German Foreign Minister, currently on a visit to India, paid using Paytm for shopping in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk.

Paytm has been at the forefront of Digital India, revolutionising everyday payments and empowering Indians with seamless, secure and superfast financial transactions. The company is also driving financial inclusion in the country in line with its mission to bring half a billion unserved and underserved Indians into the mainstream economy.
