The move also caught the attention of brokerages. Morgan Stanley maintained its “equal weight” rating for the stock with a price target of ₹555. The brokerage said that the move of the regulator was a positive development and it will be closely watching the NPCI’s response. The analysts added that approval from NPCI will ensure quick migration of customers and less disruption.

Jefferies also said that the move was good for Paytm as the clarity of UPI handles reduces regulatory risks. The analysts added that this removes one of the two key regulatory overhangs. The global research firm moved the Vijay Shekhar Sharma-led company to the not-rated category last week.
