To encourage online payments, Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) is continuing with the Rs 1,000 award each to 10 online payment transactions during 2021. On Friday, a computerised draw was held to decide 10 winners for the month of December. It was observed that among the winners, one deposited the lowest amount of Rs 654 and another deposited Rs 800. The 10 winners include five allottees of small flats, one allottee of affordable rental housing, three allottees of residential units and one allottee of commercial unit.
A computerised draw to decide 10 winners is being held every month. Yashpal Garg, CEO, CHB, said the board had introduced the facility of online payment of all kinds of dues, after which allottees were not required to visit the office. People can pay their dues online by visiting the housing board website, www.chbonline.in, he added.
The online payment process has been simplified and can now be made without registration or going through the process of User ID and password. The option for ‘Quick online payment’ has been provided.
The allottee/applicant only needs to mention the category, sector and unit number while other details like name, registration number and scheme will be filled automatically. An auto-generated SMS is sent on every payment and receipt can be downloaded instantly. Online payments can be made through Net Banking, debit cards and credit cards, without extra charge, Garg said.
