Paytm First Games triples user base amid COVID-19 lockdown
After Indian Govt. issued direction to block 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok, trolls on Tuesday started demanding the banning of Paytm in India.

The Noida, Uttar Pradesh headquartered company has been the target of trolls ever since the tensions in Galwan valley led to the unfortunate death of Indian soldiers and the ensuing tensions with China.

Why Govt. did not ban Paytm: Trolls

Trolls started questioning why the government did not ban Paytm which has Ant Financial, a subsidiary of Alibaba, as an investor in the firm.

However, netizens soon came to the rescue of the Indian financial services major.

“Paytm is Indian company that has quietly been feeding millions of daily labors amidst lockdown & providing employment to Indians. Nobody is highlighting that! Paytm Is Indian,” (sic) tweeted Ramesh Bala.

Some even took on Congress leader and Tamil Nadu MP Manickam Tagore who called upon the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ban e-commerce mobile application Paytm, stating it has ‘massive Chinese investments’.

However he was quickly countered by Twitterati who pointed out the obvious that owning shares of the company and the country of origin of a firm are two different things.

“Paytm is not a Chinese Company, Company origin and Company shares are different!” tweeted one user.

Venture capitalist Anand Lunia in a series of tweets cleared all misconceptions about Paytm and others being trolled over funds from Chinese investors.

“Paytm, Zomato, etc are all Indian cos. They have to follow Indian laws by being present here as a legal entity,” (sic) he tweeted.

Great statement from Paytm after ban on Chinese apps

In the Corona era, Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma called the Indian government's decision to ban 59 Chinese apps as bold. He described this decision as a step taken in the national interest. On Monday evening, the Indian government had announced a ban on 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok, Share-It, CamScanner and Likee. Sharma's statement is very important as China's Alibaba and Ant Financial have invested heavily in One97 Communications, which operates Paytm. Alibaba and its affiliated companies hold 25% stake in One97 Communications.
