The MCC will soon commence the online bill payment system for water consumers in the city. Once the online payment option is ready, nearly 90,000 consumers in the city can pay their bills using their mobile phones or personal computers.

They will have to enter their consumer number to access the account and make payment through internet banking or using their credit cards,” the official said.
