Do you use food coupons like the Sodexo Meal pass and find it acceptable among only a few selected hotels or restaurants. Also due to its expiry dates, you waste lots of your free food allowance? India’s top digital wallet provider Paytm has come up with the first-of-its-kind service called Food Wallet.

Paytm Food Wallet is part of the Paytm app itself. It allows companies to instantly credit their employee’s Food Wallet with the food allowance of Rs 50 per meal or up to Rs 2,200 per month. The best part is that this food allowance is tax-free, eliminates risks of loss like paper coupons and has no expiry date.
