Earlier on Friday, Google took down one of the most popular fintech applications in India, Paytm, from its Play Store.

The app was put back by late in the evening, after Paytm ‘temporarily’ removed cashback component to meet the Play Store requirements.

Google confirmed the development and shared a blog post in response to numerous press queries that might have flooded their inbox.
