So, let us take a look at how you can pay NDPL bill online!
Step 1: Visit NDPL portal
Fire up your web browser and click on this link. You will be taken directly to the payment portal of NDPL. Don’t worry about the overly simplified webpage that you see. Simplicity is always beautiful.
Step 2: Provide your CA No.
On the webpage that you land on, you will see a small form. A really tiny form with just a single field which will be asking for your CA No. Type in your CA No. accurately. A wrong entry will either not work or will pull out a wrong bill. In case of the second event, you may end up paying for someone else’s electricity bill.
Step 3: Click on Pay Now
Once you have provided your CA No. properly, simply click on the ‘Pay Now’ button and wait until the webpage refreshes and shows you your pending bill amount. You will also notice an option for paying the bill. Proceed with the online instructions and pay. There are at least three options available that you can use:
- You can pay using your debit card.
- You can pay using your credit card.
- You can pay using net banking option.
Once you complete the payment, you will receive a payment receipt in email account. You will also see a receipt right on your screen once the payment is successful. Print the receipt and keep it safe.
Alternative Payment Methods
Okay, let us clarify one thing. When we are saying ‘alternative payment methods’ we really mean alternative online payment methods. We are not talking about standing in queues. Apart from the actual portal of NDPL, you can use several other alternatives, which are described briefly:
