Baramulla: Power Development Department Baramulla Division Monday launched a special electronic bill clearance drive for commercial establishments here.
Executive Engineer Division Baramulla Farooq Ahmad said that the drive has been launched in view of the closure of the financial year 2017-18.
“PDD officials approach traders along with the point of sale (PoS) machine. The shopkeeper/trader uses his ATM card to clear the requisite electricity dues,” he said.
He added that the drive has been launched as part of digital India initiative so that customers can get their dues cleared in a hassle-free manner.
He further said that it will help them from the inconvenience of going bank where the heavy rush is witnessed due to financial closing.
