Paying electricity bills online is the easiest way to avoid standing in queues for electricity bill payment. Most states in India now have online bill payment and Uttar Pradesh is not behind. Recent unbundling of state electricity boards has resulted in 3 different utilities or electricity providers in Uttar Pradesh. So the UPEB or Uttar Pradesh Electricity Board is no longer supplying electricity and it is the state distribution companies that are doing so. The four companies are: Purvanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Ltd. (PUVVNL), Madhyanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Ltd. (MVVNL), Paschimanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Ltd. (PVVNL) and Dakshinanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Ltd. (DVVNL). All four of them have online bill payment through UPPCLOnline (or Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited Online):
UPPCLOnline Portal (www.uppclonline.com): UPPCLOnline portal provides multiple services that include new connection application, printing of duplicate bills and online bill payment in Uttar Pradesh. Currently the website only serves a few cities:
15) Rae Bareli
8) Ghaziabad(EUDD-4, 5, 6 and 7)
and in PUVVNL:
11) Maunath Bhanjan
More cities are getting added to be served through this portal.
Modes of Payments accepted: Debit/Credit Cards (VISA, MASTER CARDS and AMEX CARDS) and Netbanking.
