New Delhi: Google on Friday said it has removed Paytm app from the Play Store for violation of its policy on sport betting activities. Paytm will not be available for download now but there will be no impact on existing users of the app.

“The app was blocked for violation of play policies – a clarification of our policy was released earlier today ahead of the IPL tournament,” Google said in an e-mailed response on Friday.

Google also said that only the app availability on Play Store is impacted and there is no impact on users.

In a tweet, Paytm said Paytm Android app is temporarily unavailable on Google’s Play Store for new downloads or updates.

“It will be back very soon. All your money is completely safe, and you can continue to enjoy your Paytm app as normal,” it added.

Paytm is a popular app for digital transactions.

In a blog on Friday, the tech giant said it does not allow apps facilitating sports betting and will remove such apps from the Google Play Store.

Further, Google said that when an app violates these policies, it notifies the developer of the violation and removes the app from Google Play until the developer brings the app into compliance.
