The resignation was submitted for personal reasons to explore better career prospects and Surinder Chawla will be relieved from Paytm Payment Bank (PPBL)on June 26, the filings added.

The development comes after actions by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) against Paytm Payments Bank. In late January, RBI had imposed restrictions on the company due to concerns regarding breach of and compliance with regulatory norms.

While RBI later granted brief relaxation to Paytm, the latter discontinued inter-company agreements between the company and Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL). The move was taken to ensure the independent operations of PPBL.
