How to pay your bill from home?
Most of the bills, phone recharge or train tickets can be paid online. But an Indian bank account is requested in 90% of the cases.
Plan to stay more than 6 months, open a bank account.
Not that easy, but it will save you time. We recommend private banks like HDFC or Axis bank. Most important, choose a bank near your office or home, you will have to go back several times…
Less than 6 months ? A solution is to have a Paytm account.
- Go on www.paytm.com, open an account with your Indian phone number and email.
- Then you can recharge your account in small shop with the logo paytm.
- If you do not make verify your address, you will be allowed to recharge only 5000rs/month. It is enough to pay your phone bill but might not be enough if you need to pay your electricity bill.
- You will then be able to recharge your phone, pay electricity bill, buy train ticket on irctc website, or even book movie tickets.
