Telkom’s financial services platform T-kash has been integrated into, eCitizen, the government digital services platform.
This integration now allows all T-kash customers to pay for national and county level government services offered through the eCitizen portal.
Services such as those offered by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Business Registration Service and Immigration Services and bundled services under the Civil Registration Department, Office of the Attorney General, Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), National Construction Authority (NCA), Kenya Film Commission, National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), Kenya National Qualifications Authority (KNQA) and the Ministries of Land and Mining can now be paid for using T-kash.
In addition, eCitizen users in Kisumu, Mombasa and Nyeri counties are also able to pay for single business permits, trade licenses and e-construction permits, a key milestone in the country’s goal to automate service delivery and make it easy to do business.
“Financial services, partnerships and digitisation form part of Telkom’s focus areas. In this strategic direction, Telkom seeks to enrich its financial services offering in response to the evolving digital lifestyle of the consumer, where convenience and simplicity are paramount,” a statement from Telkom Kenya reads.
In order to pay using T-kash when transacting on eCitizen, users simply have to choose it at the checkout stage and follow on-screen prompts and instructions to complete making the payment.
