One97 Communications Limited (OCL), which owns the brand Paytm, today announced that it has partnered with India's largest pure-play credit card issuer SBI Card, to launch Paytm SBI Card on the RuPay network. The three homegrown brands, Paytm, SBI Card and NPCI, have joined forces to drive credit inclusion. They bring benefits, spend-based cashback points and milestone benefits for the most rewarding experience.

Apart from that, the new product drives convenience by enabling customers to use the Paytm SBI Card on RuPay network, where UPI payments through credit cards will be live shortly. Above all, it looks to expand access to credit and foster financial inclusion by bringing ‘new to credit' users into the formal economy
