Paytm KYC in detail - Users can and cannot do

Know Your Customer (KYC) implemented by Reserve Bank of India to get the right details of customers of the related Banks. Even Digital Wallets are also said to attach KYV details to continue their services for their users.

RBI introduced strict KYC norms for digital wallets,
or prepaid payments instruments, such as Paytm, JioMoney, Vodafone mPesa, Amazon Pay and others. We are aware that even Digital Wallet companies are requesting their users to link Aadhaar cards as major verification document.  Users can also give additional documents like Passport, Driving License, Pan Card, Election ID card.

Here we detailed what Users can do and cannot do from Paytm :-

KYC (In-person verification) :-

Once the users has completed KYC (In-person verification) they can get full usage of Digital Wallet app Paytm with multiple years of validity. Can maintain maximum wallet balance of Rs 1,00,000 and also do money transfets to other Paytm users or bank accounts as well as pay for recharges, shopping and other payments.
