Explaining the scheme, a state power department official said that the model will somewhat be like concessions on mobile phone bills provided by different service providers.
“WBSEDCL consumers opting for e- bills instead of printed paper will be able to avail the concessions. But those who do not have Internet or computer can also avail of the discount. They have to call up the helpline, know the amount and pay the bill over the counter. But to avail the discount, they would have to pay within the due date and not take a printout,” the state power department official said.
According to him, many mobile service providers are adopting similar schemes for saving paper.
