Paytm Share Price Target 2030:

It would be very early to estimate very long term future prediction,  especially when a company is not generating profit and continuously making losses, however, paytm management have said from Sep 2023 they will be a profitable company. Therefore we can only create an optimistic value. When the company will start to generate profit and we will find things are improving then we could predict the futuristic price based on their performance.


Overall Paytm have a strong customer base, but company is not generating profit. If you have already invested at IPO time and still in the company then at this level according to your risk appetite, you can hold. For a new Investor it is not a good idea to invest until company started to generate profit, there are lots of other companies to invest, which is generating profit and value to their investors.
