    Paytm has started off the ongoing financial year on a strong note, with 89 percent year-on-year revenue growth in Q1FY23 at Rs 1,680 crore, while EBITDA (Before ESOP) loss reduced to Rs 275 crore, marking an improvement of Rs 93 crore Q-o-Q.

    One97 Communications Limited (OCL), that owns the brand Paytm, said it is facilitating monthly peer-to-merchants (P2M) transactions worth over 1 lakh crore per month, marking 70 percent year-on-year increase.
    The company’s end-to-end payments services continue to be the driving force behind its strong business model that has enabled it to upsell high-margin financial services to its vast consumer and merchant base. With this, the company remains confident about achieving operating profitability by September 2023, Paytm said in a statement.
    Paytm spokesperson said, “Creating long-term value for our shareholders and customers is a priority for us, as we remain focused on building a large and profitable company. We are committed to strengthening our pioneership in digital payments and drive financial inclusion in India with our innovative offerings.”
