Phone Pe and Paytm engage in Twitter banter after YES Bank moratorium affects the former

While the PhonePe Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Sameer Nigam, has assured the Digital payments service will be live in a few hours, the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) thanks users for the patience and added that the company was disbursing merchant settlements.

In a hilarious tweet, Paytm invited PhonePe to work on its bank platform to restore its services and added that Paytm can “seamlessly scale manifold” to handle the latter’s business. PhonePe rebuked the former saying that they would have contacted them if their UPI platform was “so seamless.”

The Twitter confrontation happened after PhonePe was forced to temporarily suspended its services, following the moratorium imposed by the Reserve Bank of India on YES Bank. The popup reads, “We are going through an unscheduled maintenance activity. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
