Paytm app removed from the Google Play Store

Vastavam Web: India’s leading online payments app, PayTm received a shock from tech giant Google as the app was removed from the Play-Store. This is something that happened for the first time to PayTm while it’s other service app such as Paytm money, Paytm for Business; movie ticketing application, Paytm Insider, continue to be on the Play Store.

Before removing the PayTm app, Google has released a new set of guidelines against gambling policies in the country and added that these apps pose a potential harm to the users. May be PayTm falls under this category and so has removed the app.

According to a report by TechCrunch, this decision has been taken by the internet search company as Paytm app “repeatedly violated company’s policies.” The report cites two people familiar with the matter who said that Paytm has been removed from Play Store one day before Indian Premier League is scheduled to kickstart.
