Why RBI cracked down on Paytm Payments Bank?

The Reserve Bank of India conducted an audit of Paytm Payments Bank and found several issues with their know-your-customer (KYC) processes for onboarding new clients.

Paytm Payments Bank had extensive related-party transactions with other Paytm group companies. This led to concerns about potential conflicts of interest and the bank’s autonomy.

The complex shareholding structure and IT concerns also add to RBI’s crackdown on the bank.
