The Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) built the ePay Punjab App, which has so far been quite successful thanks to the confidence that many users have placed in it by transacting more than Rs 500 million in the app’s first 100 days of availability.
The app was released in October 2019 to allow individuals to pay their taxes and levies online without getting into awkward or annoying situations, such as venturing outside of their homes in the rain or in extremely cold or icy conditions, or waiting in long lines to pay their dues, etc.
The first digital payment aggregator in Pakistan for business-to-government (B2G) and public-to-government (P2G) transactions is called ePay Punjab.
Dues can be paid through the following 4 payment methods using ePay Punjab.
- Mobile Banking
- Over the Counter
- Internet Banking
Under the direction and advice of Punjab’s Finance Department, The Punjab IT Board (PITB) created the solution. It is interconnected with the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and 1-link at the backend allowing connectivity throughout Pakistan’s complete banking network.
Process and Channels for Payment
A person will use the e-Pay Punjab application or website to generate a 17-digit PSID number in order to pay tax obligations. The residents might then use the PSID number, which is distinct for each transaction, to pay their tax obligations on the aforementioned four payment channels, namely Mobile Banking, Internet Banking, ATM, or OTC.
