India Trending Paytm wallet Deactivated

According to RBI guidelines, you will not be able to deposit money in Paytm wallet from 16th March i.e. tomorrow. In such a situation, if you are currently using Paytm's FASTag, then it needs to be changed before the deadline. Failure to do this is likely to result in over double toll charges. According to the rules, if payment is not made through Fastag, double toll has to be paid.


However, whatever money you add to Paytm wallet before March 15, you will be able to spend it even after March 15. Paytm has the highest number of FASTag users in India.
