PESHAWAR: The provincial government has hired the services of a private company to open desks for the collection of traffic challans in various areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s capital city, in order to facilitate citizens and transporters.
The PTI government, in collaboration with a private company A2Z E-payments, has established an integrated electronic payment facility in Peshawar to improve the performance of government departments especially the traffic management machinery.
The company’s CEO, Shakir Ullah said the purpose behind the e-payments was to improve public sector efficiency and provide better services to citizens.
According to him, E-payments systems could reduce corruption, increase access to information, reduce the need for in-person contact with public officials, ensure equal treatment by government officials and the availability of government services and complaints cells to citizens 24 hours a day.
In KP, this system has resulted in the increase of revenue, the control of leakages and the equitable distribution of gross revenues.
A2Z E-Payments has joined hands under a public private partnership with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa traffic police to introduce the E-Payments system. Initially people in districts Peshawar, Abbottabad, Mansehra, Haripur, Mardan, Nowshera, Charsadda, Swabi, Swat, Kohat, Bannu and Karak along with their respective highways will be able to avail this service.
