BSNL partners Union Bank of India - Pay BSNL Bills and recharge Mobile Services


BSNL partners Union Bank of India to launch bill payment, mobile recharge services
BSNL the telecom giant has joined hands with Union Bank of India, to enables its customers to pay BSNL Bills and also recharge their Mobile Services.


The Highlights of the Scheme are:- 

1.Bill payment through Mobile:
UBI account holders, after one time registration of BSNL mobile number through mobile, makes payment of BSNL bill using the mobile phone anytime, anywhere. 
2.Mobile Top-up through Mobile :
Common customers of BSNL and UBI top-up their mobile through the registered mobile anytime, anywhere.
The following two features available at ATM’s  are the most attractive

3.Bill Payment at ATM: -
No pre-registration required; customer uses his UBI Debit card & makes payment of BSNL bill, anytime, anywhere through UBI ATM and gets a receipt. 
4.Mobile Top-up through ATM :-
Without any pre-registration, customer uses his UBI Debit card to top-up BSNL Pre-paid Card, anytime, anywhere through UBI ATM and gets a receipt. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------
How does the scheme work without any registration?

Ans: The BSNL Bill data will be accessible through the UBI’s Banks ATM Channel.
The customer keys in his BSNL account number, in the UBI ATM, the outstanding bills will be displayed.

Basing on this data, the customer can pay his outstanding bills.  
The subscribers need not visit BSNL counters to pay BSNL bills or top-up their prepaid cards. 
I am sure the non-registration feature, will encourage more and more UBI customers to try out this new facility.

But, I feel in the long run, BSNL will replicate the same features in other Banks too
