Bengaluru: The Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) has launched a mobile application to help customers to pay water bills online.

Most Bengalureans depend on the BWSSB for supply of drinking water and the new app will help them do a hassle-free payment.  

Earlier water bills were calculated by the monthly consumption and consumers had to pay bills using cash, cheques, or DDs.

The decision to launch a mobile application was made by the BWSSB after many banks started rejecting cheques and DDs.
