Expectation Of License Approval By March 15

According to the report of the news agency Reuters, the digital payment firm is expected to get approval for a third-party application provider license from NPCI by March 15. This license will be made available for One97 Communications’ product Paytm. After getting this license, Paytm will be able to provide payment service to its customers through its app without any problem, even after the closure of its banking service, Paytm Payments Bank.

The Central Bank (RBI) has announced a ban on the option of Paytm Payments Bank Limited from March 15 onwards. After this date, services like credit transactions, prepaid services, Fastag, customer deposits, and use of the National Common Mobility Card and wallet of Paytm Payments Bank will stop.

What Is A Third-Party App Provider?

These are platforms that provide NPCI’s UPI payment service. Such apps cannot sell banking products on these platforms on their own. Let us tell you that from Google Pay to PhonePe, all are third-party app providers.

According to the news agency report, if the license of Paytm’s third-party app provider is approved, then customers will continue to get the service of making payments through the Paytm app. Users will be able to make UPI payments connected to the accounts of other banks on Paytm.
