Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday gave 15 days more till March 15, 2024, to Paytm Payments Bank Ltd (PPBL) to stop deposits, credit transactions, or top-ups in any customer accounts, wallets, and FASTags, keeping in view the interest of customers, including merchants.

As per a January 31 order from the central bank, PPBL was asked to stop further deposits, credit transactions, or top-ups in any customer accounts, prepaid instruments, wallets, FASTags, and National Common Mobility Cards, after February 29.

The RBI said this is being done keeping in view the interest of customers (including merchants) of PPBL who may require a little more time to make alternative arrangements and the larger public interest.

“Further, it is directed that the bank shall facilitate a seamless withdrawal of customer deposits that are parked with partner banks under the automatic ‘sweep-in sweep-out’ facility without causing any inconvenience to such customers,” the Reserve Bank of India said.

The central bank has taken action against PPBL for persistent non-compliance and continued material supervisory concerns in the bank, warranting further supervisory action.
