Paytm owner One97 Communications said Thursday that it has become an official digital payment partner for the Prime Ministers Museum in the nation’s capital.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday inaugurated the “Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya” (Prime Ministers Museum), which honors all the country’s prime ministers since independence.
