BHIM App: Now Pay Bills Easily

The categories which are present currently are:
- Post-paid Mobile
- Gas & water
Interestingly, Jio and Airtel, two of the biggest telecom networks are not available for post-paid mobile payments as of now. The networks which are available are;

And, since BHIM app is powered by UPI, users would be required to first transfer the money via UPI address into their BHIM app, and then make the payments.
Created by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), BHIM App was initially launched for P2P payments, which then diversified into other niches.
Their cashback offer of Rs 750 has been very popular among their users.
This new feature of online bill payment is part of UPI 2.0 vision, of which BHIM is an important part.
