Speaking about this, Rahul Dev, a Tech Corporate Lawyer, submitted a post on LinkedIn. He said, “As per logo registration process in India, a company must advertise its logo, and if any other can raise issues or complaints, then they have to wait for four months.”

Paytm had promoted its design on July 18th of this year, which means PayPal complaint had filed on the last day of the legislative four-month period. As we know, Paytm is a fastest growing online retailer in India, and it has played a key role in the Government of India made a decision of banning Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. Paytm allows digital transactions through their wallets and this it has registered more than five million new users.
