All types of online payment gateways, including debit card, digital wallets, cash card and Unified Payments Interface (UPIs), have been exempted from processing charges. “For bill payment up to Rs 2,000, we used to charge 0.62% towards processing charges. It was 0.82% for payment above Rs 2,000. Now, no processing charge is applicable for online payment,” Mumbai-based central public relation officer of MSEDCL P S Patil said.
He added that the payment through credit card would continue to attract processing charges. “The online payment can be done by visiting the official website www.mahadiscom.in or through mobile application of MSEDCL. The mobile application can be downloaded from Google Playstore,” he said.
“The state power utility has given effective options to consumers in the form of online payments as a substitute to the conventional mode. Consumers can pay bills at their convenience from home or office instead of standing in queues. Online payment is hassle-free and a safe method and we appeal consumers at large to opt for it,” Patil added.
As per official data, over 35 lakh consumers pay their monthly bills using online facilities of MSEDCL.
