Another Twitter user, Kumar Ankit, shared a picture of a grocery shop in remote Bihar accepting payments with Paytm QR. “My car broke down in the middle of nowhere in Gaya, Bihar. Nearest mechanic and petrol pump is 10 kms away.

But, you have a small shop with Paytm. Interestingly the QR code was covered in plastic – he said “bhaiya aise saaf rehta ha”. He gets 10-15k per month on Paytm even here,” he captioned the image.
