Yes Paytm, the famous payments app everyone in the country uses. Recently Paytm has evolved into much more than just a simple payment portal. You can now pay bills, order food or groceries and book tickets to your favourite events.

Apart from finding the most popular cinema halls and major events in your city, there’s also a good chance that you’ll stumble across some smaller but rather interesting events as well.

You can download Paytm for Android or for iOS.


Developer: Phonepe Pvt Ltd. | Size: 36MB (Android);  317.7 MB (iOS) | Price: Free

It’s practically the same story as with Paytm, however, PhonePe takes a rather different approach to let you find events,

Rather than finding events, the app is more focussed on selling tickets. However, being a common payment gateway, most organisers will put their events on it which means, you’re gonna be able to find them.

You can download PhonePe for Android or for iOS.
