The year 2022 has not been a great one for these tech stocks, which made their debut on the stock market only last year. Each of these stocks have lost a significant chunk of their market cap and have largely been facing a downwards trend since the start of this year.

According to Bombay Stock Exchange, Zomato’s share price has slumped nearly 60% since this year, wiping out nearly ₹64,000 crore in investor wealth in the process. Similarly, PB Fintech — the parent company of PolicyBazaar and PaisaBazaar — has lost roughly 37% of its value since January 3, the first day of trading in 2022.

One97 Communications, the parent company of Paytm, was anyway not doing great in 2021 but 2022 was somehow worse for the company, which lost 58.06% of its share price and market cap this year. The company’s valuation has eroded over 75% ever since its listing in November 2021.
