Nashik Road : Consumers should pay electricity bill online through authorised agency appointed by Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd. In addition, while paying the electricity bill, if they have any doubt about agency, they should verify it and pay the bill thereafter, urged the MSEDCL.
Online electricity bill payment centres, appointed by the MSEDCL are available in entire Maharashtra. Payment of bills are made through these centres, but unauthorised bill payment centres which have no permission by the MSEDCL are taking bill payment from consumers, but do not pay it to the MSEDCL, it has been found.
Though consumers paid their bills, it is not registered with the MSEDCL due to these unauthorised centres. As a result, electricity supply of concerned consumers is stopped and consumers face difficulties. After paying the electricity bill online, consumers should take its receipt. They should check consumer number in the receipt and receipt number, urged the MSEDCL.
