Google has removed digital payments major Paytm's app from its Play Store for allegedly violating its gambling policies.
"Paytm Android app is temporarily unavailable on Google's Play Store for new downloads or updates. It will be back very soon," the company said in a tweet on Friday.
"All your money is completely safe, and you can continue to enjoy your Paytm app as normal," it added.
Google said that it does not allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting.
"When an app violates these policies, we notify the developer of the violation and remove the app from Google Play until the developer brings the app into compliance, Suzanne Frey, Vice President, Product, Android Security and Privacy, wrote in a blog post.
