One can use their debit/ credit card (Visa and master) to pay power bill online but they will be paying 3% more i.e.1.5% towards transaction and 1.5 % service tax. but they can avoid standing in Que and getting power disconnected in spite of payment at Bangalore one counters.
As a matter of fact as per the Bescom rule one needs to verify and intimate the house in charge to keep the bill paid details before disconnecting the connection which is a normal practice. Once similar case happened in Mysore where in linemen disconnected the power connection without the notice of the occupant but later I filed a case in the consumer forum which has passed order to pay compensation plus asked to initiate departmental enquiry against the responsible officer.
