TANGEDCO is planning to start the Mobile Wallet facility soon for electricity bills paying through private agencies. An official information that as per the guidance of the central govt, the TANGEDCO higher officials recommended the setting up of PoS (Point of Sale) devices in the EB bill collection centres with the help of banks enabling payment through debit cards. However, this recommendation remained neglected.
During the meeting of the state electricity ministers, the proposal was recommended introducing digital transactions for electricity bill payment. This has been taken up for implementation on top priority.
It will need longer for TANGEDCO to develop its own App. So, while not looking forward to this, the plans are afoot to begin the power of the mobile wallet system to receive payment of electricity bills with facilitate from private agencies.
As per this, the customers will use the app of the contracted agency to form the payment. An official announcement concerning this may be free shortly. The official warned the customers to not create any payments through spurious Apps.
