How To Solve Paytm Verification Code not Coming

This is a very simple but basic thing to check as many people by mistake enter the wrong number unknowingly, So check the number correctly.

Sometimes internet connection you are using may have very low strength because of which Paytm will not be able to receive your request properly, thus make sure you use a fast internet connection.
