The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication (MOIT&T), and the National Information Technology Board (NITB), under the auspices of the government of Pakistan, will launch Pakistan’s first-ever IPG to advance the nation’s digital infrastructure to provide ease of doing business to the digital users globally.
A statement by the ministry said, “We are aiming for User’s Digital payments with ease, convenience, and enhanced safety. In this regard, we are adopting user sensitive inclusive approach and request our users to provide detailed feedback regarding the features for enhanced usability of IPG.”
