Paytm Shifts Nodal Account to Axis Bank, RBI Extends Unit Wind-Down Date to March 15

India's Paytm Payments Bank has been given more time by the central bank to wind down its operations, while its parent company has signed on a new banking partner to try to keep some of its popular products running and survive its current crisis.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in January ordered Paytm Payments Bank, an associate of One 97 Communications (OCL) - also known as Paytm, to stop accepting any fresh deposits in its accounts, or wallets, from Feb. 29. That deadline was extended to March 15, the RBI said on Friday.
