The Kerala State Electricity Board, under Govt of Kerala, has released an official Android app for facilitating online bill payments. The app was officially launched by Minister for Electricity M.M Mani on 15th November 2017 at Thiruvananthapuram. Along with the app release, the payment system is also being shifted to National Automated Clearing House(NACH) by NPCI. Let’s explore the app and see how to pay a KSEB bill.

You can also pay the bill from KSEB web portal, however, the app has made it convenient with fewer clicks. The app also gives you notifications alerting bill due date, payment confirmation etc. However, a new user cannot register from the app, you need a KSEB web self service profile. So let’s begin with creating a KSEB Web Self Service Profile.
