Former global business head of WhatsApp Neeraj Arora is likely to rejoin the board of Paytm amid the digital payments and financial services preparing to come out with a Rs 16,600 crore worth initial public offer.

“Neeraj Arora is likely to join Paytm board soon,” a source aware of the development told PTI.
