<p>One97 Communications moved its nodal account from Paytm Payments Bank to Axis Bank recently in order to maintain Paytm’s services, including the Paytm QR, soundbox, and card machine.<br />
By March 15, RBI had given Paytm Payments Bank Ltd. (PPBL) merchants and customers instructions to move their accounts to other banks, enabling PPBL to shut down the majority of its activities.<br />
Paytm’s stock fell sharply after the RBI requested that it halt its payments bank activities because it had repeatedly ignored warnings to comply with laws.</p>
<p>PPBL stopped making deposits, credit transactions, and top-ups in client accounts, prepaid cards, wallets, FASTags, and National Common Mobility Cards on February 29 after the RBI’s directive on January 31.</p>
