Jal Sansthan’s online portal would be launched from November. This portal would facilitate people to gauge their tax dues and arrears online and make e-payments swiftly without having to slog to reach Jal Sansthan’s zonal office for tax payment.

Jal Sansthan general manager S K Verma said, “The portal facility would be launched initially from zone 8 to see the response and check the portal’s performance. Soon, it will be launched across city.” Zone 8 includes colonies on Rae Bareli Road and Sultanpur Road like Vrindavan Yojna, Telibagh, South City, and colonies near PGI, Ruchi, Rashmi and Rajni Khands, Eldeco Udyan II, etc.

Currently, the portal is being scrutinised for various financial security checks as many banks would be involved for electronic mode of payment. Verma said, “We have kept provision for transactions of all major authorised government and private banks operating here. We have yet to decide the bank for gateway payment channel, which would be done soon.”

Consumers have been allotted a consumer ID on their tax receipts of Jal Sansthan. To pay tax online, one has to log in with consumer ID or house number to reach the payment page. Here, tax amount and arrears if any can be accessed and payment made online though ATM card. The system would generate online receipt automatically.
