For a few hours on 18 September, Paytm was removed from the Google Play Store but was back by evening. Google Store had apparently decided to remove Paytm for allegedly violating gambling policies. Google’s GPAY is in direct competition with Paytm in India.

Paytm has clarified that Google had misconstrued their Paytm Cricket League app as a betting app, whereas it was actually a cash-back app. The communication was only received by Paytm from Google in the morning, but was restored by evening.
