Digital Payment System aims to be a one-stop solution for all payments. It will offer multiple channels for payments through the E-Pay Mobile App.
Furthermore, customers can use the digital platform to pay their bills whenever they want regardless of wherever they are. The increased efficiency and speed of the Digital Payment System is naturally expected to result in immense cost savings and offer a highly convenient solution to customers.
The following are some of the main features of the upcoming online payment system:
- Utility Bill Payments
- Digital Payments on Shopping
- Excise and Taxation
- Traffic Challan Fee
- Sales Tax
- Educational Boards
- Fee Submission
The KP government has been incredibly supportive of the concept of a national digital economy. Under the leadership of Brunel University graduate Dr. Sahibzada Ali Mahmud, the KP Information Technology Board (KPITB) is trying to focus more on centralizing its operations and working on e-governance. The introduction of Digital Payment System is just another step on the road to provincial digital model.
