10 years ago, there was hardly any digital money in circulation. Today we find ourselves making online transactions even in little beetle shops!

This is largely due to companies like Paytm, which made online payment systems commonplace and ubiquitous.

And Paytm's growth in itself has been immense and full of interesting facts.
