Digital payments and financial services company Paytm has shared an update with the exchanges about its 100 per cent subsidiary, Paytm Payments Services.

The fintech company said that it has received a letter from the Reserve Bank of India in response to an application from its subsidiary for the authorization to provide payment aggregator services for online merchants.

The company can now resubmit the application within 120 calendar days for the payment aggregator services. Ahead of that, the company will seek necessary approval for past downward investment from Paytm into into its subsidiary, to comply with foreign direct investment guidelines.

During this process, the company will not onboard new online merchants.

"We can continue to onboard new offline merchants and offer them payment services including All-in-One QR, Soundbox, Card Machines, etc. Similarly, PPSL can continue to do business with existing online merchants, for whom the services will remain unaffected," said the company in its exchange filing on Saturday.

This essentially means that Paytm's strong business momentum is likely to continue, with no impact on its profitability target as the company can continue to work with its existing online merchants.

Additionally, Paytm's growing device deployments base and increasing offline payments base will also not be impacted with this development, where it can continue to onboard new merchants.

The company specifically outlined in its filing that this has no material impact on its business and revenues since the communication from RBI is applicable only to the onboarding of new online merchants.

"We are hopeful of receiving the necessary approvals in a timely manner and resubmitting the application," said the company in the filing. (ANI)
