UPI ID Tips: Now Paytm users can easily change UPI ID..

social media

Paytm has been in the headlines for the past several days. Millions of people across the country use this app for online payments. Recently, strict action was taken by the Reserve Bank of India i.e. RBI against its Payments Bank. Amidst the bad news, a special facility has been started on Paytm which will make a lot of work easier for the users.

Paytm is facing a lot of problems after the action taken by RBI on Paytm Payments Bank. For this reason, the company also had to stop its Fastag service. However, Paytm has been granted a license to operate as a third-party aggregator. This service is provided by Google Pay and WhatsApp Pay in India. Due to this change, users' existing @paytm UPI ID will not be available, hence they will have to switch to the new ID upon migration.

In the meantime, if you are waiting for this change to happen or for some reason the auto-migration has not happened. Now you can also switch it manually in the app on your phone.
