The Paytm app has been removed from the Google Play Store. The reason reported for the removal of the app is that Google doesn’t allow ‘unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting’.
Google had notified developers about this a few days ago. It also said that it is working with Paytm to bring the app back on the Play Store.
A search for the Paytm app on the Play Store confirmed the app’s removal. Other apps from the company like Paytm Money, Paytm Mall and Paytm for Business are still available for download.
On September 18, Google released a statement saying that it doesn’t allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. ( TOI )
