The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) (India) is planning to set up one-stop solution for you to pay your phone bills, electricity bills and charging cell phones in the nearest market of your colony. MCD is planning to set up 2.5 lakh kiosks across the country.
These air-conditioned and weather-resistant information kiosks will be operated by a private firm and will help the cash-strapped MCD boost its revenue collections. The kiosk machine will be screen enabled and provide credit/debit card facility for payment and transactions. There is also a facility to charge a mobile phone in case of an emergency. It will also give information on parking lots and hospitals in the locality. The kiosk will also provide basic information on airlines and trains. MCD is hoping to generate revenue by charging a fixed commission on each transaction made. The MCD will also give out space for advertisement which includes visual displays flashing on the information screen.
