Furthermore, citizens pretty actively use the e-Government portal for topping up their accounts in Kazakhstan Zhilstroysberbank – 6% of all payments, or over KZT 1 billion.
It should be added that with a view to voiding the requirement for submitting the receipts confirming payment, the eGov payment gateway was integrated with 21 second-tier banks.
For reference: The “eGov Payment Gateway” information system has been operated in Kazakhstan since 2010. Its objectives are the automation and integration with banks and with government agencies’ information systems in order to provide citizens with electronic methods of payment for public services delivered in terms of e-government.
