The Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TGSPDCL) announced on Sunday that consumers must pay their electricity bills exclusively through the TSSPDCL portal or mobile app starting from July 1, 2024.

The decision to stop payments through UPI third-party apps like PhonePe, GooglePay, and Paytm aligns with new Reserve Bank of India (RBI) regulations. TSSPDCL has accordingly halted accepting bill payments via these third-party platforms.

To comply with the new guidelines, consumers need to download the TSSPDCL mobile app and register their service.
