To encourage use of technology and save paper, the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has decided to offer incentives to electricity and water consumers who opt for bills through email only.
“Electricity and water consumers in NDMC areas can now opt for receiving their bills through email only in lieu of physical bill and get a rebate of Rs 20 per monthly bill,” a senior NDMC official told PTI.
“Option can be exercised by registering for this service from a link at home page of NDMC website “quick pay electricity/water bill”. Consumers can also choose to receive both e-bills and physical bill but in that case rebate of Rs 20 per bill will not be admissible,” the official said.
Registration is also required to be done separately for both electricity and water bills.
The civic body will also be offering a rebate of 0.2 per cent to those making the payment through electronic mode within seven days of dispatch of the bill.
“Consumers making payments of their bills through electronic mode (net banking/ debit or credit card) within seven days of the dispatch of the bill will get additional rebate of 0.2 per cent of the bill amount (Current Bill Cycle),” the official said.
“This rebate will be available to consumers irrespective of the mode of receipt of bill-e bill or physical bill. These two rebates will be separate and exclusive of each other,” he added.
