NCDC offers Mobile digital payments
The National Capital District Commission (NCDC) has registered with BSP Financial Group Limited (BSP) as a Mobile Banking Merchant to offer digital mobile payment for NCDC Services in Port Moresby.
National Capital District Commission (NCDC) is a Corporate and Municipal Authority established pursuant to Section 4 of the Constitution governed by the NCDC Chairman, who is the Governor of NCD and the Chief Executive, who is the NCDC City Manager.
As part of Port Moresby’s modernisation and transformation strategy, NCDC City Management endeavours to optimize revenue collection and therefore ensuring service users have the opportunity to pay their bills on time with the introduction of mobile digital payments for NCDC municipal service is well received by the NCDC.
NCDC City Manager Bernard Kipit said, “By becoming a Mobile Merchant on the BSP Mobile Banking service, this enables alternative payments options for residents to pay for municipal services using their mobile phone 24/7 for services like NCDC Land Tax, Garbage Rates, Dump Fees, Burial Fees and Market Vendor Fees, in an efficient, accountable and faster process.”
“Significantly, this accomplishment provides all our customers mobile payments without needing to come our office which effectively means they can remain up to date on their bills, and avoid penalties for late fees. It will definitely increase the efficiency and ease of reconciliation, with the reduced hassles associated with handling cash and more secure way to receive payments means my staff do not have to visit the bank regularly. The challenges of COVID situation in Port Moresby has impacted many service providers, and this mode of payment reduces direct customer-contact with our staff and equally important is all NCDC services’ clients can pay immediately to access our services” said Bernard Kipit.
