In a move to encourage digital payment of electricity bills on time, BSES, one of the two power distribution companies (discoms) in Delhi, announced a cashback scheme by which consumers stand to benefit by up to Rs 300 per month if they pay their bills through the digital payment platform Mobikwik. “To avail the cash-back, all a consumer has to do is make the payment from Mobikwik’s website or mobile app,” a BSES statement here said.

“BSES consumers residing in South, West, East and Central Delhi can get loyalty cash back of 10 percent, or up to Rs 300 per month, every month till September 30th, 2018. This means, that over a 12-month period, they can get a cashback of up to Rs 3600,” it said. Around 40 lakh customers of both BSES discoms in the national capital — BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) — are eligible for the offer and can make their payment through various options.
