Fintech major Paytm and HDFC Bank announced a strategic collaboration on Monday, in which the two businesses would merge their expertise in banking, lending, and digital payments to create new digital solutions for financial transformation. The decision comes about a week after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave the private sector lender permission to begin issuing new credit cards.

Paytm is India's largest payment platform, with 333 million customers and 21 million merchants. As of March 31, 2021, India's largest payments platform in terms of the number of consumers, merchants, consumer-to-merchant transactions, and revenue. Whereas, HDFC Bank has over 50 million card clients (both credit and debit cards) and leadership in both credit card issuing and acquiring industries. It has over 2 million merchant receiving points and a 48% share of the merchant accepting volume market. With a spend share of over 27%, it is still the country's leading credit card provider.
