BSNL vendors can now pay for services without visiting the telco’s office.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has launched Bharat InstaPay, a digital payment platform with State Bank of India (SBI). India will be able to make the necessary payments without going to the office of the BSNL partner company through InstaPay, although online verification will have to be done once for this. BSNL has launched the portal of Bharat Instapay. For payment on BSNL’s Bharat Instapay platform, channel partners will get a special code which will be its ID.
The objective of BSNL regarding its payment platform is to make the partner’s work easier. Partners will be able to make timely payments through Bharat Inscape. In such a situation, his time will not be spent on going to the office. At its launch, director Vivek Banjal said that the company is continuously working to facilitate its business partner.
Vendors working with BSNL had no option but to visit the telco’s offices to pay for telecom services offered by the telecom company. The whole process used to get further delayed due to non-working days. However, the platform will now help channel partners of BSNL pay bills online. This will help them save time as they don’t need to come to BSNL offices for any paperwork. Purwar said that the platform will help to increase the credibility of the company towards partners and will also increase their growth pace.
To register, channel partners of BSNL will have to complete a one-time online verification process on the Bharat Instapay Portal.
