Paytm has made a big announcement in the country in the midst of Corona virus crisis. In the lockdown, people do not have any problem in booking domestic gas cylinders sitting at home, so Paytm has now started this service on its app. That is, users will now be able to book LPG cylinders from the Paytm app. For this, the company has partnered with oil marketing company Indian Oil Company Limited.
With the help of this partnership, IOCL petrol pumps will be able to pay through Paytm and book Indane gas cylinders. Indane is owned by Indian Oil.
How to order cylinder
Paytm users will have to go to the ‘Other Services’ section of the app and tap on the ‘Book a Cylinder’ icon to order an Indane cylinder. Minor details will need to be filled in the entire process and there will be no need to enter details on cylinder booking every time. The user only has to enter his consumer number or registered mobile number and the name of the gas agency.
No need to step out of your house to book an LPG refill!
We have partnered with @IndianOilcl to enable digital payments at IOCL fuelling stations & its LPG cylinder delivery ecosystem in the country. 🇮🇳
