Paytm will not be available for download now but there will be no impact on existing users of the app, PTI reported.
We have these policies to protect users from potential harm. When an app violates these policies, we notify the developer of the violation and remove the app from Google Play until the developer brings the app into compliance. And in the case where there are repeated policy violations, we may take more serious action which may include terminating Google Play Developer accounts. Our policies are applied and enforced on all developers consistently,” Google added
Paytm app users can still use their app if it is installed on their phones. It is the 6th most downloaded fintech app, according to the Sensor Tower – a website that provides “enterprise-level data on mobile apps and publishers.”
Paytm has 450 million users and apart from being a payment app, it provides features like online shopping, gaming and banking along with other services.
