The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has requested that Paytm Payments Bank shut down its business. In January, the central bank ordered Paytm Payments Bank, an affiliate of Paytm, to stop accepting new deposits into its accounts (wallets) effective February 29th. This deadline has been extended to March 15th. After March 15th, the RBI will prevent Paytm Payments Bank from accepting any credit transactions, deposits, or top-ups in customer accounts, prepaid cards, wallets, FASTags, National Common Mobility Cards,
