Addressing on the launch, Satish Kumar Gupta, MD and CEO of Paytm Payments Bank said, “The new app has been introduced exclusively for its bank’s customers to provide a wide range of banking services in a phased manner. The purpose of a new app is to segregate its operations from the existing app which caters to customers of several group entities. However, PPB customers will continue to serve its customers on its older app should its customers desire so. Both apps will co-exist.”
