Life was made easy and stress-free with digital payment and recharge apps. They have given us the liberty to make payments of prepaid/postpaid mobile number, landline, electricity, insurance, and gas bill anytime and from anywhere.

What’s more? These apps offer massive discounts and deals on every recharge, which makes them even more useful. The success can be judged by the sheer number of mobile-based e-recharge services that has grown in India over the past couple of years.

The new services are generally the ones that offer most lucrative deals. So, if you are looking for mobile and bill payment apps that offer comprehensive and efficient solutions, here are a few you must try.
