Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) has partnered with a company called Ultracash Technologies to provide voice-based digital payment facility to BharatGas consumers. Buyers can now book their LPG cylinder using their voice. Additionally, it will allow people without a smartphone or internet to book their cylinder easily and even pay digitally using UPI 123Pay. The new payment method was introduced by RBI earlier this month. About 4 crore consumers of Bharat Gas can be benefitted by this new facility.

BPCL claims that it is the first company in India to offer the new service after the RBI Governor announced the launch of UPI 123PAY. BPCL has partnered with UltraCash which is a mobile payment application developed and authorized by National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI).

How to book cylinder using Ultra Cash?

Bharat Gas customers can call the common number 08045163554 from a non-internet phone and book a Bharat Gas cylinder for themselves or for their friends in simple steps.

According to BPCL, during the month preceding the launch, over 13,000 BharatGas customers transacted over Rs 1 crore, indicating that there could be a transaction value of Rs 100 crore in the next twelve months.

Santosh Kumar, Executive Director-in-Charge (LPG), BPCL said, “India still has a large number of feature phone users. Apart from this, many users in urban areas are also looking for completely secure modes of digital payments. With the Government of India promoting the use of LPG through schemes like Ujjwala Yojana, this facility will help in making more penetration in the rural markets. While this service is accessible to all, it is primarily aimed at non-feature phone users, but the ease and security of payments of UPI123PAY will make it popular across regions and users. So BharatGas is enabling a service that is truly meant for India.”

Vishal Lal, Co-Founder, UltraCash said, “We are extremely excited to partner with BPCL on this wonderful journey of bringing the next set of customers into the digital revolution. This unprecedented initiative by RBI and NPCI, allows customers to make payments and book calls in the simplest form of voice calls.
