Questions have also been raised on Paytm’s business model

Questions have been raised many times regarding the business model of Paytm. Senior banker Aditya Puri questioned the business model of financial services company Paytm, saying that the company has garnered customers by giving ‘cashback’ and not through services. There is a decline in the stock of Paytm, due to which the investors have suffered heavy losses.

Puri led the private sector HDFC Bank from its inception and made it the largest bank in the sector till his retirement in the year 2020. He questioned Paytm’s business model and wondered where is the profit if the company manages so many payments? Puri’s remarks came amid a sharp fall in Paytm shares, which are now 75 per cent below the price at which investors bought them in the initial public offering (IPO).
