HPCL gets aboard Infibeam Avenues' BillAvenue Platform for LPG gas bookings

November 27, 2019  |  Published by ET Bureau

Ahmedabad Infibeam Avenues Limited has partnered with HPCL for LPG gas cylinder bookings across India through its BillAvenue platform. HPCL is the first biller to go live under the new LPG category. BillAvenue is a unified, interoperable online bill payments platform built on the Bharat BillPay System (BBPS) infrastructure developed by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).

A.R. Ramesh, BBPS chief said: "The Bharat BillPay System launched by NPCI has revolutionized the way bill payments of electricity, gas, water, telecom and DTH are done. However, the existing gas category hitherto included only piped gas category. The RBI has recently decided to expand the scope and coverage of BBPS to include all categories of billers who raise recurring bills including booking for gas cylinders." HPCL is the first biller to go live under the new LPG category, he said.

Vishwas Patel, ED at Infibeam Avenues, added the partnership with HPCL will realise NPCI's vision of simplifying and transforming bill payments for electricity, gas, water, telecom, and other services in India.
