Earlier, in the morning session, the fintech major's stock climbed 4.98% to 449.30 -- its upper circuit limit -- on the BSE; NSE, on the other hand, witnessed the company's stocks rally 4.99% to reach 449.50, the highest trading permissible limit for the day.

That rally came a day after entrepreneur Vijay Shekhar Sharma, who founded One97 Communications Limited, stepped down as part-time non-executive chairman of Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL) and as a member of the bank's board.

According to a filing that announced Sharma's resignation, the board has been reconstituted and PPBL will commence the process of appointing a new chairman.

The deadline was later extended to March 15.
