Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has decided to extend the scheme of ‘receipt of payment of postpaid bills through retailer C-Top Up by franchisees and E-distributors’ for a period up to 31st December 2017 on PAN India basis.
As we reported earlier, BSNL started accepting the payment of postpaid bills of Landline, Broadband, CDMA and WiMax Services through retailer C-Top Up / e-Distributors across India. The scheme was expired on 30th September 2017.
Now, based on the feedback from field units, BSNL authorities has decided to extend the scheme for another period of 3 months i.e., up to 31-12-2017 or up to the implementation of modified scheme whichever is earlier.
Retailers who wish to accept Postpaid Mobile Bills may purchase separate stock for Postpaid Bill / CBP (C-Top Up / Cellone Bill Payment) Wallet. For this, retailers may contact their Franchisee Office and they will give detailed instructions regarding the scheme & commission structure.
Salient Features of Postpaid Bill / CBP (C-Top Up Bill Payment)
- Separate stock has to be taken by each dealer – one for Prepaid another for Postpaid Bill (CBP)
- The CBP service is through USSD Platform (*222*MPIN#)
- Commission as applicable will be added to Franchisee after transaction is done unlike upfront commission given in Prepaid wallet.
Under this scheme, BSNL postpaid customers of Landline, Broadband, Mobile, CDMA and WiMax services may pay their bills at their local BSNL retailer even after office hours on all seven days. A flat 2% up-front commission (without any upper capping) to Franchisees was also conveyed under this scheme. This scheme is really a good move by BSNL and it will reduce the rush at BSNL Bill Counters during payment due date.
