Shares of One97 Communications, the parent company of Paytm, recovered sharply on November 23, by almost 6 percent to hit Rs 1,447 on the BSE.

The stock closed at Rs 1,360.30 on November 22, down more than 35 percent from its issue price of Rs 2,150.

The bounceback in the shares of the digital payments giant may have come amid the massive correction in the stock since its debut, which was triggered on the back of overblown valuations, and uncertainty over business model and path to profitability.
