Paytm’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma’s first public remarks on RBI action: ‘I’ve learnt…’


Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma said that he was confident that his company will overcome regulatory setbacks in India this year and stage a comeback. At a financial technology conference in Tokyo, he said, “The biggest thing that I’ve learned is that many times your teammate and adviser may not be getting it correct.” This is his first public appearance since RBI ordered Paytm Payments Bank to halt certain activities.

He asserted, “And it is important for you, yourself to be taking care of it versus just letting a teammate or a adviser suggest that what should it be.”

Vijay Shekhar Sharma resigned from the Paytm Payments Bank’s board in February, almost a month after RBI barred prohibited the bank from accepting new deposits in its customer accounts or wallets.

Despite the setbacks, he said that he appreciates what regulators are doing to create a healthy environment for startups in India.

“Things become very big and systematically important, very fast. We have been able to very happily see our regulator engage,” he said.

Expressing his hope for the company, Vijay Shekhar Sharma said, “Asia has an opportunity to build a financial system for the next generation. Make Paytm an Asia leader — in my lifetime, I would like to do that.”

On strategy for Paytm, he said that it will include building new bank partnerships for the India market and expanding into other Asian markets.

“Ambiguity brings stress. When you are clear, when you know, then it is the perseverance on the mission that you are in. This is a great day when I have new lessons to learn and new opportunities to address,” he said.
