Meanwhile, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has imposed a ban on the services provided by Paytm Payments Bank Ltd (PPBL). Effective from February 29, the ability to replenish Paytm bank accounts, FASTag, and even the Paytm wallet will be discontinued. However, users with an existing balance in their Paytm wallet will retain the ability to withdraw their funds. Once these funds are withdrawn or spent, the wallet will become unusable. Therefore, it is crucial for Paytm wallet users to move their funds to an alternate bank account. If you’re looking to transfer your funds from your Paytm wallet to another bank account, here’s a step-by-step guide to assist you.
