The issues were from a part of the business that stopped two years ago. Paytm is fixing its systems to follow the rules better. The Reserve Bank of India told Paytm to close down by March 15 because it didn’t follow rules well.

The company’s CEO, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, owns a big part of the bank but stepped down from some roles. The government checked Paytm because it heard about illegal activities like online gambling. Money from these activities went through Paytm’s bank accounts. The government confirmed the investigation and penalty on Paytm.
