Paytm is asking for sim verification


I don't know why Paytm randomly started asking for sim verification before using wallet balance. 

I have added money to wallet associated with my secondary sim which doesn't have sms or any active pack. Since i cant send sms that amount is stuck in the wallet. Is there any solution for this?

If amount struck is greater than recharge amount

Simpleee recharge that account and use that balance.

Next time use paytm upi lite (perfect replacement for wallet)

Not a perfect replacement for wallet.

When UPI network goes down (although rarely, but happens), PayTM Wallet balance can be used to make payments on PayTM QR

Another tip if your sim cards are without outgoing sms facility: Never take out the sim and try to pay by upi or check balance. This will trigger the sim verification process again.

If at least IC SMS is available you can try clearing app data and logging in again. I had tried this a few times in the past few months (other than the last couple) and surprisingly re-verification wasn't required until the next time.

I tried logging out and logging in, it did that with otp but while using wallet balance it again asks for sim verification

What happens if we try to update Mobile no. to another which already has a paytm account?

I have KYC Paytm account with X mobile no ( old number), but my Main number is Y. In primary mobile while trying to use Paytm (lined to X)  but phone carries Y mobile no , it sometimes asks for Re-verification using SMS which means headache to putting back old SIM into the phone

This has become a headache for me bcuz paytm randomly asks for since verification and I don't have any recharge plans to carry out this verification. I don't even logout or remove sim from my mobile but also I get this sim verification issue frequently and so I have to recharge that number and then do verification. Is there any solution to fix this ?
