The app was removed in violation of Google's gambling policy

There has been no clarification from Google yet to remove Paytm from the Google Play Store, but according to some media reports, the app has been removed due to a violation of the gambling policy. Google India in its blog post today talked about the policy of gambling (online gambling). Nowhere in the blog is Paytm's name mentioned, but it seems to be hinting at Paytm, as the app was removed from the Google Play Store within minutes of the blog being published. The company has caught the eye of Google since Paytm launched PaytmCricketLeague. Google has made this decision to stop online gambling.
