The Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC) has finally decided to incorporate an e-payment system in the job application portal in a bid to facilitate the candidates.
At present, candidates are required to go to their nearest National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) branch to submit fees for jobs under the PPSC.
Briefing in this regard, a Punjab Public Service Commission official said that the e-payment system has been established in association with the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB).
From 1 August 2022 onwards, when applying on PPSC’s online job portal, applicants will be given a 17-digit Payment Slip ID (PSID). They will be required to submit the fee against the PSID via ATM, Mobile Banking, Internet Banking, Microfinance Banks, or over the counter of the nearest 1Link member banks and branches. Candidates can also submit the fees via Easy Paisa, U-paisa, Jazz Cash, and other microfinance banks.
Moreover, after submitting the fee, PPSC will dispatch a confirmation SMS and email to the candidates. After confirmation, applicants will then be able to complete their application on PPSC’s job portal.
Without the payment of fees, the candidate will not be allowed to process the application. Soon after the launch of the E-Payment system, Punjab Public Service Commission will not admit the 32-A fee challan forms.
The official added that the e-payment system not only envisions assisting the candidates but also accelerating the job application process. It will put a stop to fake/unpaid challan forms besides helping automate receipt verifications.
It will be a 24/7 facility initiated to facilitate candidates in hassle-free fee submission, the official stated.
Meanwhile, in a separate development released from, the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC), earlier this week, all exams for General Recruitment (GR) in Karachi all had been postponed because of inclement weather conditions.
According to the official notification, FPSC will reveal the revised schedule for GR exams in due course however GR exams in other cities will continue as per the schedule.
