Lately Freecharge has been making great strides to propagate their digital wallet all across the country. Their latest move lets users pay for their fuel bills at Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) using the Freecharge wallet. The process is very quick and the OnTheGo Pin gets generated even in the absence of internet connectivity so users need not worry about bad connectivity.
The facility will be launched in phases with the first phase supporting payment at over 60 petrol pumps spread across 10 states – Maharashtra, Delhi, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh. The company aims to enable Freecharge Wallet payment at over 4,500 petrol pumps over the next few months.
Making this move is a way for both companies to make their presence felt in today’s smartphone generation and look for ways to reduce cash transactions.
