India’s Paytm back on Google store after policy violations ban

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian digital payments firm Paytm on Friday said its mobile app was back on Google’s android store after the US tech giant kept it offline for several hours, citing the SoftBank-backed company’s violations of its gambling policy. “Update: And we’re back!” Paytm told users on Twitter, some of whom had expressed concerns about their money in the company’s digital wallet and bank.
