New Delhi: Digital payments major Paytm on Monday said it will invest Rs 5,000 crore over the next three years as it looks to enhance bank transfer and other payments facilities for customers through its platform.

The Alibaba and SoftBank-backed company said it has unified bank transfers under a new My Payments feature on its app that will allow users to transfer money from one bank account to another by using UPI and IMPS methods.

Besides, customers can now also use the feature to make recurring, high value payment and other monthly expenses in an easy manner, Paytm said in a statement.
