LAHORE: The Punjab government is set to launch ePay, a mobile application, on Friday for all business-to-government (B2G) and public-to-government (P2G) payments in order to facilitate the public and improve country’s revenue collection through easy payment solution.

The application has been jointly developed by the Punjab Finance Department and the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB), said Provincial Finance Minister Makhdoom Hashim Jawan Bakht while chairing a meeting on Thursday.

The application would allow citizens of Punjab to pay taxes using three different electronic payment channels namely internet/mobile banking, ATM and through over the counter (OTC) banking transaction. The application will also allow citizens of Punjab to generate a 17 digit unique PSID number that can be used to pay the necessary taxes.
