At a time when the city of Chennai is reeling under tremendous pressure from the unprecedented floods, Paytm and Vodafone are coming forward to initiate their support towards their customers in Chennai.

Paytm, India’s largest mobile payment and commerce platform is doing its bit to offer relief and assistance to the residents of flood-stricken Chennai. Amidst the deluge, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to stay connected with family and friends.
