The Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) has signed an agreement with the HDFC Bank to enable online payment facility for the residents of Uttar Pradesh. Now, the residents of the State will be able to transact online on the LDA’s website using the HDFC Bank’s payment gateway.
The HDFC officials said the residents of the State can perform five transactions apart from applying for new schemes, purchase of forms, and payment of registration and map fee in a quick and convenient manner, by any debit card, credit card, or netbanking facility.
As of now, residents had to visit the LDA office to apply for new residential and commercial real-estate property schemes, purchase of forms of property registration and submission of map fee through cash or cheque, which can be a quite time-consuming process.
The LDA authorities said, “This first-of-its kind initiative in Lucknow will reduce the time spent commuting and queuing up to make payment. It will also allow people who have moved out of the city to make their payment in a timely manner from the comfort of their homes or offices.”
The initiative is part of India’s premier full-service digital bank’s strategic focus on customer convenience, access and delight, using technology as an enabler, the Bank added.
The HDFC Bank has 426 branches and 933 ATMs in the state of Uttar Pradesh. As of March 31, 2016, the Bank had a national distribution network of 4,520 branches and 12,000 ATMs across 2,587 cities and towns.
