Payment app Paytm has mysteriously disappeared from Google Play Store. The app, owned by One97 Communications Ltd, is not visible on being searched on Google Play Store whereas all the other apps including Paytm For Business, Paytm Money, Paytm Mall, and others owned by the company are still available on Play Store.

However, Paytm is available for download on the Apple App Store.

Google has apparently removed the Paytm app because it allegedly violates the company’s new rules around online gambling. According to reports, Google says in a statement: "We don’t allow online casinos (or) support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. It includes if the app leads consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money (or) cash prizes," Google said in a statement.

Paytm app is now back on Google Play for everyone to download. Earlier in the day, Google had removed the Paytm app from the Play store, but the reason behind it was not given then. A Techcrunch report pointed out that the decision to remove Paytm app from Google Play was essentially because of ‘repeated policy violations.’
