E-GRAS launched for hassle-free online payments
For seamless transition, the option of payment through manually filled challans will continue for two months starting from Saturday, after which the method will be ceased.
To enable people to pay fees, taxes and payment for government services online, Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Saturday launched e-GRAS (e-Government Receipt Accounting System) portal, https://egrasmanipur.nic.in.
The new facility will allow anytime-anywhere payment and will provide a quick and simple method of payment to the general public. For seamless transition, the option of payment through manually filled challans will continue for two months starting from Saturday, after which the method will be ceased.
However, facility of payment across a bank counter will be made available with electronically generated challan. For initial implementation, the state government has authorised the State Bank of India (SBI) to conduct the business of e-receipts and its various payment gateways will be available for online payment. The government will expand the list of banks after completion of necessary procedures.
To start with, facilities for payment of Professional Taxes (PT) and Value Added Tax (VAT) will be made available on e-GRAS. New services will be onboarded on the e-GRAS portal by the government from time to time. Relevant orders, policy and FAQs will be available on the portal.
