The Selangor government announced today the launch of a digital payments platform dubbed Citizens Electronic Payments Platform (CEpat).
CEpat is intended to be a single platform in which citizens can make payments to all government agencies at various levels of the Selangor state which includes things like zakat, assessment tax, parking.
YAB Tuan Amirudin Bin Shari, Chief Minister of Selangor said in a media statement that the Selangor government’s vision is to have all state and local government services to be accessible through a single digital platform by 2022.
The development of CEPat was spearheaded by the Smart Selangor Delivery Unit in collaboration with local councils, state agencies, financial institutions, and e-wallet players.
The Chief Minister is hopeful that the platform will be able to house all the 40+ e-wallet players in Malaysia.
CEPat will be available for download on both Google Playstore and Apple AppStore on 1st October 2019. Sign-ups for the web version are already available.
