Japanese conglomerate SoftBank has pumped $1.4 billion (over Rs 9,079 crore) into One97 Communications Ltd, an entity that operates the mobile payments and e-commerce platform under the Paytm brand. Livemint, citing anonymous sources associated with the deal, has reported that SoftBank has taken a stake of about 20% in Paytm with the investment.

However, the largest ecommerce platform in India, Paytm, plans to invest Rs. 10,000 crore (approximately United States dollars 1.6bn) over the next three to five years towards enabling half a billion Indians to join the mainstream economy. Having reaped unprecedented gains after the government's demonetization drive previous year, Paytm is now the second most valued domestic startup after Flipkart which saw its valuation drop from $15.2 billion to $11.6 billion post its latest round.

TOI had reported in its April 19 edition that SoftBank was in talks with Paytm for an investment topping $ 1 billion.

Payment banks are seen as a growing opportunity in a country with plenty of smartphones but with millions of Indians who lack formal access to banking services. There has also been a significant uptake in its movie ticketing, and travel booking (rail, bus and flight tickets) businesses.
