Electricity consumers won’t have to wait in a queue for paying power bills, as 13 more machines for the purpose are coming to the city in a few months to add to the seven already deployed.

Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) in identifying the installation sites. “The system will enable people to submit power bills without having to visit the payment centres,” said a PSPCL official. There will now be five payment modes. Besides machines, the others ways are through the PSPCL circle office, subdivisional office, select shops, and e-payment. The move will also help the PSPCL staff at various sub-divisional offices. Each subdivisional office receives nearly 35,000 visitors for bill payment every month.


Punjab State Power Corporation Limited has launched the PSPCL app for both Apple and Android platforms to let people fetch billing and payment history, file complaints, and know the status of the power feeders. “The app tells you about any power cut due in the day and for what duration,” PSPCL chief engineer (north) Devinder Singh Tiwana said. “The users can even check multiple accounts and billing statuses.”
