In a major regulatory move, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) dealt a severe blow to Paytm Payments Bank, restraining it from offering core services starting in March. Though not a license cancellation, the RBI’s directive significantly limits the operations of the once-dominant player in India’s fintech landscape. Paytm, with over 100 million KYC-verified customers, faces a substantial impact on its user base.

The central bank’s action restricts Paytm Payments Bank from accepting deposits, handling prepaid instruments, managing wallets, issuing FASTags, dealing with the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC), and more after February 29. The RBI cites “persistent non-compliances and material supervisory concerns” as grounds for its decision. Meanwhile, customers are assured that withdrawals and balance utilization remain unrestricted.

As one of the largest issuers of FASTags with over 8 million units, Paytm Payments Bank’s operations have been integral to India’s digital financial ecosystem. While the bank is yet to respond to the RBI’s order, the move raises questions about the future trajectory of Paytm and the broader impact on the fintech industry.
