Hello Friends, Today I am here to answer your question which is How To Delete Paytm Account. If you ever thought that can I delete the Paytm account permanently?
Today you got the answer. Yes, you can delete your account.
Let’s break down this topic today.
How many have multiple Paytm accounts let me know the comment section below?
Many of us have more that one Paytm. Even I had multiple Paytm accounts, I have deleted those accounts.
Paytm allows us to hold only 1 account per person. If you want to keep multiple accounts on Paytm, that’s against Paytm rules.
Nowadays you have complete KYC on Paytm (on Every Digital Wallets).
So if you have multiple accounts and you provide them your Documents two times they will catch you. (I don’t what they will do after caught your fraud, Maybe they will block your both accounts.).
But If you don’t provide them any Documents they can’t catch you, in that case, you can’t use full Paytm features. You can only access the Paytm UPI.
If you want to use Paytm as a UPI app then you can use multiple accounts because you don’t have to provide any documents.
I recommend you to hold only one account and delete the rest. I will help you to delete your account.
The most important thing you can’t delete your account yourself, you have to contact Paytm Customer Care. Only Customer Care has the access to delete your account.
I will share 4 methods to delete your account. Let’s take a look at those methods.

The first method is with Twitter, yes If you have a Twitter account you can delete your Paytm Account Instantly. This method is verified by me and I have deleted my account just within few hours.
The second method is with Mail, send them mail and the reason and they will delete your account ASAP.

The fourth one is via the Paytm Official app. You have to raise a ticket to delete your account.
1. Delete Your Paytm Account Via Twitter
If you are using Twitter then you can delete your Paytm account very easily. I have tried this method and working fine.
You have to send a DM(Direct Message) to Paytm that you want to delete your account.
The DM looks like “ Hello, I want to delete my account. Please delete my account ASAP.” Then you will receive an SMS like this “Hi! We request you to please specify the reason for closing the account so that we can help you in a better way. Thanks!“
Give then any reason such as you have already an account and you opened this account by mistake.
Now you will receive a DM like this “Hi! To close your Paytm account please share below-mentioned documents for validation purpose -* Screenshot of debit/credit card statement reflecting money added to your Paytm account OR, confirmation e-mail or SMS screenshot of money sent from your Paytm account registered with mobile number xxxxxx7174Please note that Paytm app screenshots are not accepted as a verification proof. Thanks!”
Send any mentioned documents.
Then you will receive a DM like this Hi! As checked there is no balance available in your account. To proceed with your account closure request we would like to inform you that in case you have Paytm money account or Paytm First membership, you will not be able to access the same post your Paytm account will get closed and refund will not be provided for the amount you have paid for Paytm First membership.

Note that once closed, account history can’t be restored.
Please note that this link is valid for 30 minutes only. Thanks!
As mentioned above you will receive an SMS on your registered number. Just click on that link and your account will be deleted successfully.

4. Via the Paytm Official App
Yes, you can delete your account via your Paytm app. you have to just raise a support ticket to delete your account. Just follow these steps.
First, open your Paytm app and tap on Menu (Left Side). Now you may see 24*7 Help. Tap on Raise a Query. Then you can saw some categories here like Recharge & Bill Payments, Paytm Wallet, Shopping on Paytm Mall, Fastag.
Now tap on View All Categories and scroll down and tap on Profile Settings. There you can saw some options like 1. I want to update my phone number, 2. I want to update profile details, 3. I want to close/delete my account, 4. I lost my phone/I want to block my account, 5. I want to change/reset my password, 6. I am unable to link Paytm for payment with another app.
You have to select ” I want to close/delete my account” this one. Then select any option which is suitable for you. I prefer to select “I don’t use this Paytm account.”
Now scroll down and tap on Message Us. Enter your Paytm Number which you want to delete.
Then again choose your suitable option. I prefer to choose Confirmation e-mail or SMS screenshot of money sent from your Paytm account registered with this mobile number. The reason behind choosing this option is you may find Paytm Money Sent SMS on your Phone’s Message Inbox. Take a screenshot of the Paytm Money Sent SMS and upload the Photo.
Leave all the other options blank. Now scroll down and tick on two options. The first one is like this Yes, I provide my consent to close this Paytm account. And the second one is like this Declaration: I accept that I have uploaded correct ownership proof for my Paytm account which I want to close and shared correct bank account details. In case the correct documents are not received, my request may be rejected.
Finally, tap on Submit Details. After submitting the details Paytm will contact you and ask your permission for confirmation about Paytm account deletion. You have to reply to this message like this “Yes I want to delete my account.” After that, you will receive an SMS with the Paytm account deletion link on your Paytm Registered number. Just click on that link and your Paytm account will be deleted.
I hope now you can delete your Paytm account. The first method is tested by me. I have deleted my account successfully within just a few hours. Let know by comment if you have deleted your account or not.
