Progress towards digital Punjab
It is no more than a millstone achieved by the Government of Punjab and especially the IT team, who performed exceptionally well. The ePay Punjab App was launched for both Android and iOS users last year. It became a huge success and made life easy for the common man. The response from the public is surprisingly outstanding.
Because of this initiative, which is taken by the Government of Punjab, it helped people to save their precious time, money, and hassle. Now they can pay their Traffic challan, property taxes, annual vehicle token tax, and many more with the help of this App.

My personal experience
I used this app, and it worked well. The best part was that I was able to pay from my home. Otherwise, I remember going to the offices and standing in a line and waiting for my turn.
It is an excellent step towards the digital Punjab initiative taken by our current government. I appreciate the significant step as it will be very beneficial and play a vital role in the future. I hope that the Government of Punjab will take more action in this regard in the future as they focus on IT.
Last but not least, I congratulate the whole team and make life easier for Punjab citizens. I wish all the best for future initiatives and pray that other governments follow the footstep of GOP.
