Introducing Utility Bill Payments on ePayRent
Paying utility bills in India is now simpler, faster and secure with the introduction of Bharat Bill Payment System (BBPS). It is an integrated bill payment system which allows customers to pay their utility bills such as electricity, water, gas, telephone, DTH and others at a single platform.
BBPS is an initiative of the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) under the guidance of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). It is an interoperable platform that enables multiple payment options such as cash payments, net banking, credit/debit cards, UPI and IMPS.
The objective of BBPS is to make bill payment easier, convenient and efficient for customers. It provides a unified interface to customers to make payments for different bills at various points of sale (POS) and online. It is a secure, efficient and cost-effective solution for customers as they are not required to store multiple credentials for various billers.
The process of paying utility bills via BBPS is quite simple. All you need to do is to visit an authorized BBPS agent and provide your bill information such as the biller name, bill amount and account details. The agent will then process the payment using the payment option of your choice.
The payment is processed instantly and the customer will receive a confirmation message on the registered mobile number. The customer can also track the status of the payment by logging into their BBPS account.
The advantages of using BBPS for utility bill payments are:
- Convenience: Customers can make bill payments from any location and at anytime.
- Security: BBPS is a secure platform as it uses multiple layers of authentication to ensure secure transactions.
- Savings: Customers can save money by availing discounts and cashback offers on utility bill payments.
- Ease of Use: BBPS provides a unified platform to make payments for different utility bills at one place.
Paying utility bills via BBPS is a convenient and secure option for customers. It is an efficient and cost-effective solution to make payments for different utility bills in India.
