Digital payments and financial services firm Paytm on Sunday reported a more than two-fold rise in gross merchandise value at Rs 1,95,600 crore in the second quarter that ended on September 30, according to the company's first operating performance report for October filed at the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).

The company had recorded a GMV of Rs 94,700 crore in the same period a year ago.

According to the financial metrics filed by the company, monthly transacting users or unique users on the Paytm platform increased by 33 per cent to 5.7 crore in the July-September 2021 quarter from 4.3 crore in the corresponding quarter of 2020-21.

The value of loans disbursed through Paytm increased by close to 500 per cent to Rs 1,260 crore during the second quarter of the current fiscal, compared to the Rs 210 crore it recorded in the corresponding quarter of 2020-21.

Paytm reported a 418-per cent growth in loan value to Rs 630 crore in October 2021, compared to the Rs 120 crore worth of loan disbursed during the same period in the last fiscal.

The number of loans also increased multifold to 28.41 lakh during the reported quarter from 3.49 lakh in the corresponding period last year.

The company will hold its first board meeting after going public on November 27 to consider and approve the financial results for the quarter and half year ended on September 30, 2021.
