How to Check Electricity ills Online in Pakistan
In Pakistan, several power distribution providers serve a certain city or region.

How to Pay Electricity Bills Online in Pakistan
Paying bills online in Pakistan has never been easier thanks to technological advancements.
The most common types of payment channels for your power bills are listed below.
- Banking via the internet and mobile devices
- Easy Paisa
Let’s take a closer look at these online payment options.
Internet and Mobile Banking
Almost all major commercial banks, including Meezan Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, HBL, and UBL, provide online and mobile banking services that let consumers pay their power bills.
To find out which banks and services you may use to pay your bills from the convenience of your own home, go to the website of your local distribution business.
You may also make a payment using your reference number and customer ID by downloading the mobile application of the bank where you have an account.
Easy Paisa is one of Pakistan’s most widely used online payment systems. It enables clients to pay a variety of bills with the touch of a button.
You must first download the Easy Paisa app and create an account before you can pay your power bills online. After you’ve signed up, go to ‘Pay Bills,’ press ‘Enter a New Bill to Pay,’ and pick ‘Enter a New Bill to Pay’ from the menu before selecting the ‘Bill Type.’ Select your electric distribution provider from the list after clicking on the ‘Electricity’ box, then either scan your bill’s barcode or input your reference number to get your bill data.
Before paying, double-check the name, due date, and the amount that is displayed on your cell phone. To finish the transaction, tap ‘Pay Bill Now.’
JazzCash is another online payment and e-wallet solution that allows clients to pay their bills without trouble.
Electricity bills may be paid online with JazzCash in two ways: through the app or by entering a JazzCash code.
If you don’t have a Mobilink account, you should download the JazzCash app. The method of paying your bill with this app is quite similar to Easy Paisa. All you have to do is join up, establish an MPIN, choose the kind of bill and utility provider, enter a consumer or reference number, validate all of your information, and press the “Submit” button.
Mobilink clients, on the other hand, can dial *786 # from their registered lines and choose ‘Pay Bills.’ After that, choose the bill type and power distribution business. Then, to create payment details, consumers must scan the barcode on their bill or manually input the consumer number. To confirm the transaction and pay the bill online, enter the MPIN.
That’s all there is to it. These are some of the most common ways in Pakistan to check and pay energy bills online.
Make sure to contact your distribution provider for clarification if you have any questions or concerns about online bill payment.
