Following the footsteps of India Post, mobile wallet operator Paytm wants to convert its payment bank into a small finance bank to become more profitable. Paytm is planning to approach the govt and the banking regulator for a small finance bank license so that it can leverage the model using tech-enabled low-cost ops.
