Get ready for some exciting news that could turn the things you spend money on every day into a golden chance. The government just announced a new program called “Mera Bill Mera Adhikar.” It will start on September 1, 2023. This plan is like a lottery, but instead of picking numbers at random, you pick bills.

So, here’s the deal: your bills for food, clothing, groceries, or anything else could win you up to Rs 1 crore! Yes, you heard that right, and it’s not a secret; the government has said it. The GST Council, which is in charge of the Goods and Services Tax, came up with this great plan just for consumers like you. How does it work?
Send in your bills to win big
Under the ‘Mera Bill Mera Adhikar’ scheme, all you have to do is upload your GST bills to the official app. It’s a piece of cake! Then, there’s a lottery every month, and guess what? You might be one of the lucky people who win. Prizes worth lakhs of rupees are being given away by the government, and the best part is that anyone in the country can enter.

What Can You Win?
The Finance Ministry says that this plan is not an easy one to pull off. 800 lucky people will each get Rs 10,000 every month just for uploading their GST bills. But that’s not all! If you’re even luckier, you might be one of ten people who win Rs 10 lakhs together. And for the grand finale, one lucky person will win a jaw-dropping one crore rupees every three months, making them a millionaire.
Who are Eligable
Now, here’s a twist: At first, this plan is only for certain states and union territories, like Gujarat, Assam, Haryana, Daman and Diu, Dadra Nagar Haveli, and Puducherry. But if you don’t live there, don’t worry. You can still take part by going to the official app’s website, web.merabill.gst.gov.in.
How it Works
To join in, you must upload a GST bill worth at least Rs 200. The “Mera Bill, Mera Adhikar” app says that only bills given directly to the end user from shops, malls, or institutions are eligible. Sorry, businesses, but this program doesn’t include B2B bills.
What to do?
Here’s what you need to know to join in: First, use your basic information to log in to the “Mera Bill Mera Adhikar” app. You can upload up to 100 bills per month, but some reports say you can only do so 25 times. The final word on this is still out there. Just remember that paying for gasoline won’t win you money, but paying for LPG gas can. Even school fees can be your ticket to a prize if they fall into the B2C category.
Get Your Award
If you’re lucky, the government will contact you by text message. Then, if you win, you’ll have 30 days to keep your original bill safe and give the ‘Mera Bill Mera Adhikar’ app your PAN Number, Aadhaar Number, and bank account information.
So, everyone, there you have it! Now is the time to be a good citizen and start paying your bills. Who knew that those pieces of crumpled paper could be your way to wealth? Mark September 1, 2023, on your calendars and get ready to turn your bills into lakhs. It’s time to play “Mera Bill Mera Adhikar” and win a lot of money.
