Known for its innovation and technology for the benefits to its consumers, Tata Power [in line with this commitment] has become the first power utility in Mumbai to print Dynamic Bharat QR codes on its power supply bills for enabling its consumers to make payments conveniently.
Consumers—upon receipt of their bills—can now scan the QR code with any of their mobile banking applications and pay without any hassle. The bill details including the amount to be paid will be displayed on the mobile application and then the consumer can authorize the payment through their debit or credit cards. Within a few seconds their bill will be paid instantaneously.
Though this functionality of bill payments through Bharat QR code has been introduced in other utilities in the country, however, Tata Power is the first power utility in Mumbai to print the Dynamic Bharat QR codes on its power supply bills. Incidentally, Tata Power was the first power utility in India to launch dynamic UPI-linked QR codes on its power supply bills for bill payments in Mumbai. The option to pay through the dynamic Bharat QR code or dynamic UPI QR Code is already available on Tata Power’s customer web portal – www.cp.tatapower.com.
The basic differentiator between the Bharat QR payment functionality and the UPI-linked QR code payment functionality (through UPI enabled Mobile Banking Apps) is that, in case of Bharat QR, payments can be authorized through debit/ credit cards and in case of UPI-linked QR, payments can be authorized through the bank accounts. However, in both the cases, the consumer details such as consumer number and bill number will be auto-captured and post-transaction a system generated unique transaction receipt for the consumer will be available instantly.
Tata Power consumers in Mumbai can pay their electricity bills through the Government of India initiated avenues such as Bharat Interface for Money (BHIM) App, Bharat Bill Payment System (BBPS), Dynamic Bharat or UPI linked QR Codes, RuPay Credit & Debit Cards, Net Banking, e-Wallets, National Automated Clearing House (NACH), Online fund transfer (NEFT/ RTGS, IMPS), etc.
