Did you also get the message to change UPI ID from @Paytm? How to Activate New UPI ID on Paytm

If you also use Paytm for UPI payments or mobile recharges, you may find this news useful. Actually, users using Paytm UPI will now have to change their @Paytm UPI handle. Users have also started receiving messages about it. Paytm Payments Bank is now providing UPI service to its customers through partner banks.

Post approval, Paytm quickly integrated with Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, State Bank of India (SBI) and Yes Bank. In such a situation, if you are also receiving messages to change your @paytm handle, let us tell you how you can change it.

The UPI of these banks will be activated.

In March, NPCI also approved OCL to operate as a third-party application provider (TPAP) under the multi-bank model. This means Paytm can now provide UPI services through partner banks. Post NPCI approval, Paytm has integrated with Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, SBI and YES Bank.

This way the existing UPI identifier with @Paytm will be changed to the new identifier. These new handles include SBI's UPI handle @ptsbi, HDFC Bank's UPI handle @pthdfc, Axis Bank's UPI handle @ptaxis and Yes Bank's UPI handle @ptyes.

Users began to receive alert messages.

The company has started migrating users with @Paytm UPI IDs to these new banks to ensure uninterrupted UPI payments. All four banks operate with TPAP. This has made it easier to transfer user accounts to these PSP banks. Some users have started receiving “Important UPI Alerts” on their app. In this, they are asked to switch to UPI control of any of these four banks.

You can activate like this.

To switch to the new UPI identifier on the Paytm app, simply click on UPI Update and follow the instructions below.
