In a bid to take on Google, Paytm today announced the launch of its Android Mini App Store to support Indian developers. This comes after Google recently evicted Paytm from its play store for allegedly violating norms. While Paytm denied any violations, it had initiated discussions with other Indian start-up founders to establish a desi app store.


Paytm is providing listing and distribution of these mini-apps within its app without any charges. For payments, developers will be able to give a choice of Paytm Wallet, Paytm Payments Bank, UPI, net-banking and cards to their users.
