The purpose is to develop a convenient, acceptable, and dependable digital payment platform that shall be used by government departments, citizens, and e-commerce firms for executing various transaction procedures.
Additionally, KPIT Board will offer an interface for the relevant departments to register their services and collect digital payments using a web or mobile application. This interface will be used for the reconciliation of digital payments.

This would not only reduce the need for citizens to wait in line at nearby locations or banks to receive necessary government services, but it will also speed up the public sector’s service delivery procedures.

“This partnership is a great example of how the public sector can work with private organizations, like Jazz towards a Digital Pakistan. I congratulate the Chairman KPITB and his team for providing digital access and ease of payments for citizens of KPK, as this measure will be a big step for digital financial inclusion in the country’’ said Ali Naseer, Jazz’s Chief Business Officer.

Prior until now, government agencies had to sign separate contracts with every digital payment service provider, which made transactions hazardous and ineffective.

Government departments will now be able to accept digital payments from all service providers in Pakistan using an uniform and integrated payment gateway interface service without separately entering into contracts with each individual digital payment service provider.

“We are proud to partner with JazzCash and Easypaisa (Telenor Bank) to open a range of exciting new possibilities for KP Government payment infrastructure and put it at the cutting edge of innovation in this space,” said Ali Mahmud, Managing Director (MD) KPIT Board.
