Trivandrum: The online bill payment facility for the regular household (LT) consumers of the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) was formally launched today by the Minister for Power and Transport Shri Aryadan Mohammed at a function held in Thiruvananthapuram. KSEB had rolled out the online bill view and pay facility for customers across the State, earlier this month, on a pilot basis.
This followed the successful implementation of the online bill payment system for LT consumers in Thiruvananthapuram district in March. The online bill e-payment for KSEB’s High Tension and Extra High Tension (HT/EHT) customers was earlier launched in July 2011. Now all the consumers of KSEB can use the online facility.
In his address, the Minister said, “The online e-payment facility was a long pending demand from the people. This facility will reduce the burden of the consumers and also the work load of the KSEB employees. It is imperative that the Board adopts the latest technology to keep in pace with the changing times.”
The regular household (LT) consumers can avail the online services to view and pay the bill by accessing KSEB’s website kseb.in. The Consumer number, Bill Number, Email id and/or Mobile Number have to be entered to view the bill details. The payment can be made by Net Banking, Credit Card or Debit Card using the Payment Gateway Site which offers secure payment facility. There is a nominal transaction charge for making the e-payment. Once payment is completed, the transaction details will be displayed and users can take printout of the same. The details will also be sent to the given Email id / Mobile.
The online e-payment and billing system (Oruma) for LT customers has been designed, developed and implemented in-house by KSEB’s MIS and IT unit using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Consumers who register their mobile numbers on the KSEB website will receive SMS alerts on bill payment.
