Paytm app removed from Google playstore for promoting sports betting

In a big news, popular digital payment app Paytm has been removed from Google Play Store.According to a report by TechCrunch, Paytm's consumer facing app has been suspended from the Play Store after Google took cognisance of "repeated violations" by Paytm of Google's Play Store app policies.Reports indicate that Paytm's suspension has come in light of the Paytm First sports betting service, which seemingly violated Google's app policies on unregulated gambling and online casinos.

According to reports, Google has also issued warnings to multiple other apps, including popular streaming service Disney+ Hotstar, for displaying disclaimers before broadcasting advertisements related to online gambling. Ahead of the popular Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket season, Google is seemingly cracking down on online gambling apps looking to offer sports betting  something that is illegal in India. Other Paytm apps, such as Paytm Money and Paytm Mall, still remain live on the Google Play Store.
