The Government of Punjab has collected a record tax revenue of Rs 27Million in lieu of Weights and Measures fee through e-Pay Punjab, an online system for payment of government taxes, developed by the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) in collaboration with the Punjab Finance Department. This was told in a progress review meeting presided over by PITB Chairman Faisal Yousaf.
The revenue collection has come through 7,000 transactions since Weights & Measures’ integration with e-Pay Punjab in December, 2022.
