India’s dominant digital payment app PayTM suddenly went off Google’s Play Store and reappeared last Friday. However, Google did not reinstate its fantasy cricket app PayTM First Games on grounds that it violated its policies on gambling. Now, India’s most valued start-up is getting support from its rivals like PhonePe in this battle. 

PhonePe, which is based on India’s unified payment interface (UPI), went live in 2016 and currently has more than 210 million users who can access its services in 10 Indian languages besides English. The company believes that India needs to provide more teeth to its anti-competition laws so that natural monopolies take cognisance of the issues and respond back within a certain timeframe. 

A good fight to fight
