Did you know that you could view an online copy of your current month’s electricity bill? As trivial as it may sound, majority of the people are unaware that such a facility exists for Pakistani consumers for their WAPDA bill. This is an extremely useful resource considering that consumers receive the printed electric bill just a few days before its due date leaving hardly any time for making the payment.
NOTE: Please note that due to changes in the WAPDA billing system, some of the links were not working. These have been rectified and now you can view your electricity bill online as per normal.
Given the negligence of our electricity distribution companies, who distribute printed copies of our electricity bills just in the nick of time, this allows consumers to be more proactive about bill payments. Your electricity bill is available online at least a week before the physical copy arrives at your doorstep. This provides ample time to make payments well within the stipulated due date.
Below are steps to access your electricity bill online or WAPDA online bill.
