“Our country is embracing digital payments for their everyday use cases. Paytm has built an ecosystem where users can make payments for various services such as mobile recharges, electricity and water bills, metro commute and also at the offline stores,” Paytm Senior Vice President Deepak Abbot said.

Paytm claimed to register more than 137 million UPI transactions in September, making up more than 33% of the overall transactions. PhonePe claimed the top spot in UPI transactions for the month of August. While the UPI number for PhonePe and Google Pay remains undisclosed for September.
