Graph about E-Payment Gateway

The National ePayment Gateway (ePG) provides an operational component of the e-Governance infrastructure and full e-commerce facilities that allow secure online payments (e-payments). The e-Payment Gateway supports multiple acquiring banks and will operate as a critical shared service within the e-Governance architecture masterplan.

The state-of-the-art e-payment solution supports the delivery of e-services of the public sector and assists the private sector’s move into e-commerce.
