Easypaisa has become the first and the only branchless banking service to begin the collection of Traffic Challan payments for the Traffic Police department in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK).
Easypaisa has partnered with A2Z e-payments, an e-payments service provider, to enable the traffic violation offenders to deposit their traffic challan fines at selected Easypaisa shops in the province.
Through Easypaisa, paying for traffic challans is now extremely convenient and transparent:
- The offender needs to visit the nearest designated Easypaisa shop with the issued Traffic Challan.
- The Easypaisa merchant will collect the fine and processes the transaction on an installed POS machine that generates a physical receipt for the merchant and the offender followed by SMS receipts on their mobile phone.
- The offender can now collect his documents from the Traffic Police Center by submitting a physical receipt of the challan payment transaction.
Easypaisa said that it believes in collaborating with public institutions to facilitate the people of Pakistan.
Even though Easypaisa has an extensive G2P disbursement, this is the first instance of a Branchless Banking service facilitating payments from the people to the Government.
With Easypaisa, traffic penalty holders can submit their traffic challans even on bank/public holidays with accessible locations cutting down on travel costs and time constraints.
Subsequently, the Traffic Enforcement agencies benefit from better traffic challan management, a comprehensive database of offenders, the elimination of paper associated costs and reduced corruption or embezzlement of funds.
Easypaisa is working hard with other Government bodies and planning to expand this service nationwide through the extensive network of 55,000 Easypaisa agents across 800 cities in Pakistan.
