Reliance Jio and Paytm got issued a NOTICE by Government!!

The government has issued notices to Paytm and Reliance Jio Infocomm asking them whether they had taken prior permission before using Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s photographs on advertisements of their products.

Reliance Jio’s use of the prime minister’s photograph in full-page advertisements issued in September last year triggered a political debate and also led to a public interest litigation. On November 9, hours after Modi announced demonetization the previous night, Paytm welcomed the decision and urged public to start using its digital wallet service by issuing an advertisement which had the prime minister’s photograph on it, in which the company congratulated the PM on his ‘bold’ move.
