Standing in long queues to pay your electricity bill may soon become a thing of the past as Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) is likely to introduce spot bill payment in the city on a pilot basis.
The facility will help ease the discomfort of disconnection due to delay in payment of bills or due to communication errors, a release said.
The service was introduced in rural areas, in collaboration with service provider NSoft, and saw good results. Gram Vidyuth Prathinidis (GVPs) issue bills, collect payments and issue a receipt. Enthused by the increase in revenue through this facility, the power utility will soon implement the same in the city and 24 other towns in its jurisdiction.
