Initially, you will get an amount up to Rs. 10,000 initially. However, this amount is nowhere near the 60,000 maximum limit. In this section, we will explain how you can increase the Paytm Postpaid limit easily.

There are three methods to do this easily:

Use Paytm Postpaid frequently

One of the easiest ways to increase the postpaid limit is to use the Paytm service regularly. You can recharge mobile phones, pay your electricity bill, recharge your DTH, book a gas cylinder, or pay the broadband bill.

Moreover, you can also use Paytm service to buy movie tickets or flight, bus and train tickets. Many other services such as insurance and stock investment are also available on Paytm.
