The Gampaha Municipal Council has fully digitized its payments platform in partnership with the Commercial Bank. Residents served by the Gampaha Municipal Council can now pay rates (Varipanam) and other services online via e-invoices through the ComBank Internet Payment Gateway (IPG) or settle their dues using their credit or debit cards or by using the LANKAQR platform when they visit the offices of the Council. Further, users of the ComBank Q+Payment App can enjoy the convenience and safety of settling their bills with a click of a button through their digital wallet.
The Bank said the digitization of payments is particularly timely and relevant given the risks associated with physically visiting offices to make payments and enhances the safety of employees of the Council by reducing the numbers of visitors coming in to pay their dues. Among the many payments that can now be made digitally are cremation booking fees, library fees, hall and grounds booking fees, and business registration fees.
