Once you give your service number and region, consumer name and address will be automatically entered. Name and username have nothing to do with name in the bill. You can register and pay your neighbor bill too once you know their service number. So the name in the top can be anyone and the username is for logging in. Remember your username and password for future payment.

5. Once the registration is over you can view the name of the EB account holder along with the amount to be paid. This will be updated every month automatically. If the bill is already paid then the status show paid and there will be no outstanding balance.

The only drawback which I noticed with the online payment as of now is the platform available to pay the bill. Rarely a few banks are available in the debit card and internet banking option. Lets hope that it will be rectified within a short span of time.
