Effective March 18, 2023, HESCOM has discontinued all online payments through BBPS (Bharat Bill Payment System) apps.

As a result, customers can now only make payments through the HESCOM website. Unfortunately, this means that the convenience of using UPI apps such as Gpay, Phonepe, CRED, Paytm, etc. is no longer available, and customers must now navigate through a series of steps on the website to make their payments.

To make a payment, customers can visit the following links based on their location:

– Urban:

– Rural:


Bills can be paid at Belagavi one centres or the HESCOM offices.

However, HESCOM has recently issued a new tender for the selection of an agency to operate the Bharat Bill Pay payment unit for the collection of electricity payments through the BBPS platform. The BBPS is an integrated online platform developed by the National Payments Corporation of India for all types of bill payments. The platform aims to create an interoperable service through a network of agents, enabling multiple payment modes, and instant generation of payment receipts. It will connect utility service companies on one end and all payment service providers on the other.

Please note that when making a payment, customers should select Rupay Debit card or UPI as other payment methods may incur additional convenience charges.

  1. Why are you making the life miserable for the rural people. You are just adding troubles to the farmers life. You should be responsible enough to support and make life easy for the farmers and entire society.

  2. World is moving digital but in Karnataka we are still in stone age. Some of the department are not happy with digitalisation . On 31st March 2023 HESCOM has billed unscientific amount .

  3. It appears that HESCOM expects people to queue up to pay their bills, rather than simplifying the process and causing inconvenience to the public.
