Paytm’s disappointing listing and continued underperformance since played a key role in the decision to defer the IPO plans, said persons to CNBC-TV18.

“The plan was first to hit the markets around Diwali, and then it (Mobikwik) also wanted to wait for the response to Paytm. Now it is unlikely to go ahead before January-February. It all depends on the markets now because timing has to be right,” said a person involved directly in the matter on the condition of anonymity, according to a report in CNBC-TV18.
