Kerala State Electricity Board Ltd or KSEB is responsible for the generation and distribution of electricity supply in the state of Kerala. The internet has brought about a number of changes that affect the way we function. In olden times we used to have to go to physically go to places to pay our bills. If these bills weren’t paid on time the services would be cut. Sometimes even fines will be levied. Nowadays we don’t have to move an inch to pay any bill. Most of the bills can be paid online by just visiting the company website and entering your credentials like consumer number or reference number. There bill amount and the split are usually sent to us by emails or text messages which often acts like a reminder.
With such level of ease introduced businesses are now making apps to help people who don’t have computers to pay bills online. A great initiative taken by KSEB us introducing a small app that helps its users pay their bill online. The app is extremely small coming in at 4MB so even if you have a very old phone it will be installed just fine. The easy to use interface is made for people who aren’t very technically profound. Older people will also find that this app is very easy to use. Users of this app will get a very accurate idea of the bill split up and will be able to view all the details regarding their connection and their bill amount.
Some of the great features of the app are
• A personalised My Account for registered Consumers (Registration can be done in a minute on wss.kseb.in in new user registration section) this will show you all your account information and the bill information
