E-Challan Payment Gateway (PG) Goa
The Challan is the prevailing system of accepting all government receipts into the Treasury. Challans are deposited by the public as well as the DDO’s of the government. In the manual system, if a citizen had to make a payment to the government, s(he) would have to visit the DDO, get the challan filled up by the DDO, go to the bank, stand in long queues and make the payment. This is a very time consuming process. For the government, if the challan was misclassified by the DDO, then the receipts were not correctly reflected in the accounts. The manual challan format was also not uniform across departments. The e-Challan PG, an initiative of the Directorate of Accounts, Govt. of Goa, is designed to tide over all these difficulties.Description:
The e-Challan PG portal has two main features:Physical e-Challan:
This option is used by the DDO’s whenever they have to deposit cash into the government treasury as currently no DDO is allowed to have a bank account. The e-Challan format is standardized across departments. Citizens not having access to online banking can make a payment across the bank counter using the physical e-Challan.
The citizen can make a payment online, for the services provided on the portal.
There is no physical challan involved. The citizen gets an e-Receipt at the end of a successful online payment, which can be produced as proof of payment.
