Hi Abhishek,

So sorry to see that you are having these issues. Let me make things better for you.
Due to a recent security sweep, Uber determines your account as a possible high security risk. For precautions, these warning were sent to make sure that the riders have their information updated. On your end, you can simply re-add your existing Paytm account and the hold will be lifted.
In any case you have any follow-ups regarding this, please feel free to email me back.

Hi,

Its great you are taking security measure.
Please remove paytm payment method at your end as I am not able to delete for readding.
If possible please add cash method as well for alternative payment method.

Thanks
Abhishek

How much I will earn by attaching my car with UBER or OLA

This is very common question now a days in India. Some of the Quora posts hints that OLA/UBER drivers are earning in lakhs per month which is not the case now.

Competition is getting tougher, 100's of new drivers are joining the platform. Now they don't get enough rides sometimes only then UBER/OLA pay them minimum amount for the day.(Already decided amount based upon business).

How to Re-authorize or unlink paytm with Uber India App

Having and active Uber and Paytm account is good, but if something goes wrong from either Uber or paytm side, you the customer suffers a lot. You can't book your ride back home, you can't book ride to airport, railway station. It becomes annoying to have such messy technical app. We cannot predict what may happen in future but we may be ready with some preparation.

Uber does all account sweep for security measures from time to time, if it finds any suspicion, it blocks account, put hold on booking a ride, asks for re-verification of ID or payment method. Recently Paytm was hacked and some hacker were able to make payment in paytm from some other account, hance Uber took security measure and put hold on some accounts.
