Digital payments major Paytm has raised $1 billion to bolster its merchant and financial services play in its latest financing round led by US-based asset management firm T Rowe Price.
The firm raised the latest financial round at a valuation of $16 billion, which will make it the most valuable startup in India since Flipkart (valued at $22 Bn) has already been acquired by US-based retailer Walmart.
Paytm will use the capital to push its merchant and financial services offerings like lending, insurance and neo banking.
Researchers have found that a lot of people diagnosed with cancer are more likely to die of heart and blood vessel problems, instead of the main disease.
This trend is even more, for cancers like those affecting breasts, prostate, endometrial, and thyroid.
Patients who were more likely to die from cancer than from CVD were those with the most aggressive and hard-to-treat cancers, such as cancer of the lung, liver, brain, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, oesophagus, ovary and multiple myeloma.
