With increasing smartphone penetration and internet usage, and the proliferation of digital products and services for consumers, India’s digital ecosystem is at an inflection point.

 Financial does not support the valuation but its hope and the high growth that in terms of Gross Value of Merchandise that company sells every year that is creating the euphoria.


Valuation remains very steep. For this valuation to sustain Paytm should remain on high growth trajectory for atleast 4-5 years.
