Powering banks to collect electricity bills in Delhi

Delhi Govt is likely to issue a Notification via DERC, instructing, that all the cash payments of Electricity Bills, will now onwards be made at the Banks only and not at the Discom's counters. Moreover, the limit will be enhanced to Rs 20,000 from the present Rs 4,000.

It's indeed a welcome step as it will make a check on the total collections of Delhi Discoms. The only problem is that the Banks in Delhi are already overcrowded and the Discom consumers will make the things a bit more difficult. Hence the Banks must make suitable arrangements to avoid any chaos and any inconvenience to their own customers. 

It will be better, if the Banks could open their extension collection counters at various DISCOM offices to avoid any inconvenience.
