It referred to a video going around on social media and said the video falsely claims that Paytm shared some data with third parties.
“Nothing can be further from the truth,” it said adding that in the past, it has neither received requests nor shared any data without a legally-compliant request from a bonafide agency and through proper process and channels.
“You can be sure that no data is shared with anyone whom you would not have given us permission to share it with. This is the holy grail of trust between us,” it added.
The blog also stated that any person claiming otherwise “is not aware of the policy and is not authorised to speak on behalf of the company”.
Apart from mobile wallet, Paytm also has other services like payments bank and e-commerce (through various entities).
