Months after launching its digital payments app Google , Google India has announced that now users can pay water, electricity, DTH and mobile bills with Google’s Tez without any transaction charges. Starting with support for more than 80 billers, including national and state electricity providers, gas, water, DTH and mobile postpaid bills and recharge, the new bill pay feature will include major utilities like Reliance Energy, BSES and DishTV, and in total will cover all states and major metros in India, said Google.

For recurring bill payments, Tez will send users a timely notification when their bill arrives, and users will be able to check whether they have paid a bill by tapping the biller’s name on their Tez home screen. Users will also be able to view all past payments grouped by bill, as well as manage bills from multiple accounts.

“Today, we are adding a specially designed bill pay experience in Tez which will enable users to make a wide range of bill payments including electricity, water, gas, DTH, and insurance from the app. We hope that users will like the simplicity and time saving with the new bill pay experience on Tez,” stated Diana Layfield, VP, Payments & Commerce, Next Billion Users.

Customers will see different billers depending on their city and region, and users can also search for them by name. Once users have located their biller, they need to enter the number associated with their account to link it to Tez and give it an easy name to remember.

Once users have linked their account, for most utility bills Tez will automatically fetch any available bills. Users need to just tap on New Payment and then Pay your bills. For every new biller you pay this month, you’ll get a scratch card with up to ₹1000.

Built on the Indian government-supported (UPI), Tez is a mobile app for digital payments, built with the goal of making digital payments as easy as using cash, said Google.
