Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma To Give Up Salary For Next Two Months Over Covid-19

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to hit businesses and the global economy, the Indian startup ecosystem has put its best foot forward to solve this crisis and has come together like never before. While over 70 founders and product managers have been working on a Quarantine app, Paytm chief Vijay Shekhar Sharma has said that he will not draw a salary for the next two months to help those employees impacted by the pandemic.

In a tweet, Sharma said that he is committing the money to any needs of Paytm office help or staff. He said that he was inspired by Marriott International president and CEO Arne Sorenson who also made a similar commitment for the rest of the year to mitigate the impact of Covid-19.
