About Electronic Billing

Electronic billing also known as e-Billing is a way of paying and sending bills electronically rather than through the use of paper. Customers can get bills online, via email, or in machine-readable data forms when billed electronically. For customers and businesses, the e-Billing process is efficient, quick, and simplified, which is why it is better suited to modern times.

Electronic billing increases efficiency saves time and lowers error rates. The transition from paper-based to electronic bills improves an organisation, fewer errors occur, reduces wastage and also helps in protecting the environment.

About Digital India

The Digital India programme was launched by the Indian government in 2015 to ensure that the government’s services are made available to the citizens electronically through increased Internet connectivity and improved online infrastructure, or by making the nation empowered digitally. This initiative has plans to connect the rural areas of India with high-speed internet networks.

This programme has three core components which are digital deliverance of government services, development of stable and secure digital infrastructure, and digital literacy.
