    Paytm was released long time ago for Mobile Recharges. Later, after its great success Paytm was upgraded to offer more online transactions like Movie Tickets, Utility Bills, etc. Now, Paytm is a Fully Functional Online Bank which even gives you Interest on your deposits and recently has launched their Paytm Postpaid credit card.

    Considering the Cons of Paytm, I don't think there is any. The only problem I faced while using Paytm is while adding money. Sometime they cut money from your account and show cancelled transaction on Paytm. Later on the money is reversed back to the payment source which was used to do the transaction. Apart from that it is one of the best Mobile Wallets that is currently available in India, that makes life easier.

    I am currently pursuing High School and planning to pursue career in Computer. Currently, I work on one of my blog - JTech Articles.

    Paytm is one of the most popular Online Wallet in India that has saved the entire mass of Indian citizens when there was a huge cash crunch during demonetization. With this now almost every shop is providing this facility. Even now, when India is still not smooth with the cash flow in ATMs, it is Paytm that is saving people from hazards even at the smallest outlets.
    Though these are the positive pictures clicked on situational basis, there are some more Pros of this wallet with a couple of Cons as well.

    Pros:
    1. India is moving towards cashless transactions.
    2. It saves time and you don't face the trouble of not having the required change of cash in your pocket.
    3. Online shopping facility
    4. Payment of bills is a breeze with Paytm
    5. Making a payment to individuals is a matter of a second.
    6. A boon for small business and freelancers.
    7. Paytm Bank is an added advantage with good interest as declared (not tried yet)

    Cons:
    1. Paytm is not accepting online banking for SBI account holdders
    2. Customer Care is extremely disappointing, they don't have any facility to call the customer care.
    3. They have made fun of the KYC process, that has not yet acknowledged my PAN card though they accepted my Aadhar card, (both were furnished at the same time)
    4. Not Allowing to open the Bank Account as my KYC process is not yet complete even after six months.

    But overall, I have had a positive experience with Paytm.
