“Today afternoon, we received communication from Google that they are suspending our app because they believe this to be a violation of their Play Store policies on gambling. The Paytm Android app has thus been unlisted from Google’s Play Store and is temporarily unavailable to users for new downloads or updates”
“While it is clear that all activities on Paytm are completely lawful, we have temporarily removed the cashback component in an effort to meet the Play Store policy requirements. We continue to work with Google to restore the app. We assure all our users that their balances and linked accounts are 100% safe”. The company added.
Additionally, Google has warned Disney+Hotstar to display a warning before promoting such Applications. Besides, Google notified several companies in India to pause all advertising campaigns which sent users to those websites that offer installation files of sports betting apps.
