What is e-Pay?
e-Pay is the first ever government payment gateway designed to allow the citizens of Punjab to pay their taxes digitally through alternative delivery channels (ADC). The solution that is developed by The Punjab Information Technology Board and backed by the Finance Department of Punjab provides individuals to pay their dues using the following three payment channels.
• Internet Banking
• OTC (Over the Counter) banking transaction
Payment Process and Channels
To pay the tax dues, an individual will access e-Pay application or website to generate a 17-digit PSID number. The PSID number that is unique for each transaction could subsequently be used on the aforementioned three payment channels i.e. internet banking, ATM or OTC by the citizens to pay the tax dues.
All three payment channels are made technically equipped to process the payments through the collective efforts of The Finance Department of Punjab, State Bank of Pakistan, 1-Link, all scheduled banks, and Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB).
