The company in their complaint said that they have a policy of paying the customers for the damaged products and later arranges a pick up for the damaged product. The company also has a customer care centre who supervise the entire process and make sure the customers get a refund for damaged products. They also assist in arranging pick ups.

Paytm in their complaint stated that these customers had “illegally” procured money.
The company has been enjoying and reportedly seen huge rise in their business since the time Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the announcement of demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.
