- PayTM, India’s popular finance app rolled out a new feature called PayTM Cricket League a day before the Indian Premier League started.
- This UPI based cashback program violated Google’s Play Store policies that restrain apps from hosting unregulated gambling content.
- PayTM rolled back the feature and the app was reinstated. But the app’s clever Founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma tweeted: “… India, you decide if giving cash back is gambling”
- He also said that this was “against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of Atmanirbhar [independent] Bharat.”
