Himachal mulls power bill payments in post offices

SHIMLA- Electricity bills in Himachal Pradesh’s state capital Shimla can now be deposited in post offices. The general post office (GPO) in Shimla has already started receiving electricty bills. If it is successful, this service will be introduced across the hill state. Currently, power bills have to be deposited at the nearest state electricity board office. The board has also installed unmanned machines which accept cash payments in Shimla and other places. But long queues are seen at these places. There is also an online facility of bill payment through net banking but hasn’t picked up. ~ Business Standard/Photo:Flickr
