BSES, one of the two electricity distribution companies (discoms) in Delhi announced the launch of the Bharat QR Code-enabled facility for paying its electricity bills in a move to encourage digital payment of electricity bills. Now the customer will get a minimum 10 percent cashback facility if they use BharatQR as a payment mode. The offer is available until February 28, 2018.
Now, the around 24 lakh customers of BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) in the south and west Delhi can benefit from the power and convenience of the revolutionary Bharat QR Code while paying their electricity bills. Moreover, it is India’s first Bharat QR Code enabled payment facility on electricity bills.
How to Avail BSES Bharat QR Offer?
To pay using this mode, a customer after opening his or her bank mobile app needs to scan the QR Code printed on the electricity bill, which will automatically populate the customer details and payment due. The customer can, thereafter, select the payment method and pay the bill. For consumers in east and central Delhi, BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) has also introduced a QR Code based bill payment option on their electricity bills.
Now customers can also get a minimum cashback of 10 percent on Bharat QR code transaction. The maximum cashback amount is fixed to Rs 75 per transaction. To avail the cashback offer, you just have to make your Bharat QR transaction through MasterCard.
Commenting on the development, BRPL Chief Executive Amal Sinha said in a statement: “This association between BRPL, Axis Bank and Master Card will be beneficial to the customers. Today, over 65 percent of BRPL consumers have started using cashless methods to pay their bills and nearly 50 percent pay through digital modes.”
