Paytm price tanks 36% from January 31- February 2

Paytm faced a significant setback when the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) stepped in to enforce restrictions on its payment bank due to rule violations. As a result of this announcement, the company's shares saw a sharp drop of 36% from January 31st to February 2nd, 2024.

Paytm Payments Bank told to halt services by February-end

On January 31, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) ordered Paytm Payments Bank Ltd (PPBL) to not onboard new customers and also not to undertake further deposits or credit transactions after February 29 this year.

"No other banking services, other than those...like fund transfers (irrespective of name and nature of services like AEPS, IMPS, etc), BBPOU and UPI facility should be provided by the bank after February 29, 2024," RBI said.

"The company expects this action to have a worst-case impact of 300-500 crore on its annual EBITDA going forward," Paytm said in a regulatory filing on 1 February.

What led to the ban on Paytm Bank by RBI?

The central bank in a statement said that the direction follows persistent non-compliance and continued material supervisory concerns.

As per various media reports, money laundering concerns and questionable dealings of hundreds of crores of rupees between popular wallet Paytm and its lesser-known banking arm led to the announcement of a ban on PPBL by the central bank
