At a recent board meeting held on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, PolicyBazaar's Board of Directors approved the incorporation of PB Pay Private Limited.

The subsidiary aims to engage in the business of payment aggregation services, both domestically and internationally, subject to approvals from regulatory authorities, particularly the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
