Paytm, India’s unicorn startup, which enables digital transaction through mobile phone, is all set to invest ₹250 crore in its travel business ‘Paytm Travel‘ over the next six months.

The company said that the investment would be used towards scaling up the product and technology team, setting up new business verticals, and growing the market share in existing travel verticals.

Abhishek Rajan, Senior Vice President at Paytm Travel, said, “We continue to witness strong growth in Tier II and III cities, which accounts for over 65 percent of our new customers. This investment will help us further bolster our position as a dominant player in the travel booking space.”

Paytm was founded in 2010 by Vijay Shekhar Sharma with an aim to bring an ease in the digital payments ecosystem across India

With a customer base of more than 15 million and annual GMV of $1 billion, Paytm’s Travel business has sold over 100 million tickets within just three years of operations.
