How to pay Tata Sky DTH moving charges?

One of the best things about Tata sky DTH is that their process and customer support is phenomenal. I am using their services since long and have used various services many times, including relocation service.

Among many other things, I like their flexibility with pricing. The prices are nearly fixed and you can pay from your TATA Sky balance. For relocation charges, you don’t need pay cash to the executive. You just have to sign the bill and then recharge your account with that amount. The amount will be deducted by Tata sky from your account balance.
