About Bombay Bijlee

Bombay Bijlee is a social enterprise based in IIT Bombay, Our vision is to help rural households realise their dreams by providing customised and energy efficient energy products on easy payment terms while providing state of art automated after sales service. There are more than 100 million households in rural India who get highly intermittent power supply and the national average of monthly income of rural households in India is Rs. 8051* which makes it tough for rural households to buy energy efficient solutions/home appliance like TV, Fan, Coolers, Refrigerators etc. as they can’t afford to buy these products upfront.Moreover they are also highly hesitant to buy these products due to the lack of reliable after sales service mechanism. We offer our solution on “Pay As You Go” model and these households can use our platform to buy necessary home appliance on “ Pay As You Go” model using our platform. Innovative part of approach is our self diagnostic hardware and software system which can diagnose any fault in the system and send an automatic SMS to the local on field technician to provide automated proactive and prompt after service. *(NABARD) All India Rural Financial Inclusion Survey 2016-17
