In its official blog, Paytm states, “We are on a mission to democratize payments by empowering every consumer and merchant to pay and receive money digitally. After the launch of our new Peer-to-Peer payment system for merchants, this is yet another step towards our goal of achieving a cashless India.”

Following the demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes, many people have signed up for digital wallet services such as Paytm and Freecharge in an effort to go cashless. This also helps them avoid the long queues outside banks and ATMs.
