The stock plunge took place a day after the Reserve Bank of India barred Paytm Payments Bank from accepting new deposits after February 29.
“No further deposits or credit transactions or top ups shall be allowed in any customer accounts, prepaid instruments, wallets, FASTags, NCMC cards, etc. after February 29, 2024, other than any interest, cashbacks, or refunds which may be credited anytime,” the RBI order had stated.
The central bank had stated that the regulatory action was taken against Payments Bank due to ‘persistent non-compliance'.
"We give sufficient time to every entity to comply and sometimes more than sufficient time to the entities for compliance. If they would comply, why would a regulator like us would have to take action?" RBI governor Shaktikanta Das had said last Thursday.
