People’s Bank offers payment acceptance solution for Ministry of Justice, Prison Affairs and Constitutional Reforms
In a groundbreaking move towards modernization and convenience, Peoples Bank has implemented a cutting-edge payment acceptance solution for the Ministry of Justice. This transformative initiative allows the public to pay fines imposed by courts seamlessly through digital payment methods such as Credit Cards and Debit Cards.
This collaboration between People’s Bank and the Ministry of Justice signifies a major leap forward in the realms of efficiency, transparency, and public service. The implementation of this digital payment solution aims to address the growing need for streamlined and user-friendly processes in the legal sphere, making the payment of fines a hassle-free experience for the public.
Under this system Individuals can now settle their court fines instantly and conveniently without carrying cash, using popular digital payment methods such as Credit and Debit Cards.
The new system also ensures transparency throughout the payment acceptance process and significantly reduces the processing time for fine payments, contributing to a more efficient justice system. All transactions are highly secure, thus safeguarding sensitive financial information.
Minister (Dr.) Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe said, “We have ambitious plans to leverage on the latest technology to offer maximum convenience to the public when they interact with the judicial system. This collaboration with People’s Bank is a testament to that commitment and we have several similar initiatives that we hope to implement soon.”
People’s Bank Chairman Sujeewa Rajapakse commented “Government institutions adopting the latest technology such as these have enabled citizens to experience a higher level of convenience when interacting with government services.”
“The availability of payment options has led to shorter queues at physical payment centers, reducing wait times and enhancing overall service satisfaction. The success of People’s Bank’s collaborative effort with government entities serves as a model for future partnerships and exemplifies the potential of synergy between financial institutions and the public sector.”
People’s Bank CEO/GM Clive Fonseka said “This is yet another example of that drive which aims to enable citizens to conveniently pay taxes, fines, fees, and other payments using multiple payment methods”. Automated payment acceptance systems significantly reduce the administrative burden on government staff.
