E-commerce shopping website Paytm, which mostly focuses on mobile recharge and e-wallet facilities, has taken a centrestage with its 'Stay Safe Chennai' initiative.

In its blog, the company says:

"Amidst these unfortunate floods, we know how staying connected with your friends/family becomes priority. One helping hand can make a difference. This is a little something from us to you, Chennai:

If you would like to recharge anyone's mobile number so that they can remain connected during this tough time, please call us at 18001030033 and share the mobile number.

We will recharge it with Rs 30 worth of talk-time, free of cost."

Paytm signed off its post by stating that Chennai should #staycharged.

The idea is to enable people to stay in touch at this time of natural distress. The humble but highly impactful initiative from Paytm has elicited a very positive response from Chennai residents on social media.

In fact, inspired by the move, many Paytm users are coming out to help others in their personal capacity by offering mobile recharges. Those who wish to extend support independently on social media can use the following hashtags on twitter: #ChennaiFloods and/or #ChennaiRains.
