Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma said, “IPL has always been a cornucopia of brands attracting wide attention from cricket frenzied fans. This is the most apt time to connect with customers and strengthen brand recognition. We always ensure that we have something for every customer, so keeping this in mind we not only have offers for customers using our recharge and utility bills payment services, but also for those shopping through our marketplace.
