PPSC introduces E-Payment System in order to provide more facilities to the applicants. Candidates must visit their local National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) branch to pay their application fees while applying for positions with the Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC). This will soon change, though, as the PPSC has finally agreed to let the job application portal accept E-Payments in order to make it more convenient for applicants.
The PPSC received confirmation from a representative of the Punjab Information Technology Board that the e-payment system was created in collaboration with them (PITB).
Starting on August 1st, 2022, the Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) will introduce the PPSC e-payment System for fee submission of online job applications. Previously, only the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) could accept fee payments, and candidates had to struggle to physically submit the amounts.
PPSC Has Launched an E-Payment System for Online Job Applications
A 17-digit PSID number will be produced for e-payment when the candidates provide their personal information on an online form. The candidates will then pay the fees associated with the PSID number via an ATM, Internet banking, mobile phone banking, or in person (by going to the nearby 1Link member banks or branches). After paying the fee, the candidates will get a confirmation SMS and email from PPSC. After confirmation, candidates will be able to complete their applications on the PPSC hiring portal.
According to a PPSC representative, the PPSC introduces E-payment System which is intended to speed up the hiring process in addition to helping candidates. False/unpaid challan forms will no longer exist, and they will assist in automating receipt verifications. It is important to note that applicants may also deposit the fees utilizing microfinance institutions like Jazz Cash, Easy Paisa, U-paisa, and others.
Earlier this week, in a separate event, the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) had canceled all of the General Recruitment (GR) tests in Karachi owing to bad weather.
According to the official statement, FPSC will revise its announcement of the GR test schedule when it is appropriate, and GR exams in other cities will go forward as scheduled.
