Google has pulled down Paytm from its Play Store. 
 
This follows a blogpost from the tech giant about its gambling policy which stated that it doesn't allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. This includes if an app leads consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money or cash prizes, it is a violation of our policies. 
 
Post that, Paytm via a post on social media has reassured its users that the app will be back on the Play Store very soon and all the money users have on the app is completely safe.
