Fix “REJECT” Error When Recharging Prepaid Metre Using KCT

I myself was faced with this error on the device I used to recharge my Enugu Disco prepaid metre.

At first, I thought it was a network problem, so I tried to wait to see whether everything was going to normalise, but it didn’t.

After trying over and over again and still getting the error, I decided to find out why.

In my own case, I was lucky enough to remember that my neighbour once came to my house to recharge, and he came with a bunch of numbers, which was unusual compared to the 22-digit codes we used to recharge with.

Rather, he came with 3 different numbers, each of which was long and worked when he entered them into the recharging device.

Curiously, I asked him, and he said he was told that he needed to enter those numbers before he could recharge his prepaid metre.

Fast forward to my time; I usually recharge on my own; and I never got any numbers except for the 22-digit token numbers for the units.

I tried recharging and faced that dreaded error and that was when I remembered my neighbour and his numbers.

I went and researched, and that’s when I realised that it seems Discos upgraded their services, and for you to continue using their services, you must do what they called KCT Validation.

Honestly, I don’t know what that means, but for you to fix the error, you need to generate a KCT number and validate.

Below, I am going to show you how to generate this KCT and fix that error once and for all.
