On Monday, a parliamentary panel was informed that the government will be introducing PayPal and similar online payment platforms in Pakistan.
Briefing the Senate Standing Committee on Science and Technology, the Ministry of Science and Technology secretary said, “The policy related to PayPal is at the advanced stage and important development is expected in the next two weeks.”
Senator Mushtaq Ahmad while speaking on the occasion raised a question that why there is no access to PayPal in Pakistan. He added that without such payment methodology in the country there would be no boost in its trade.
The secretary asked the committee to avoid discussing individual issues like promotions and illegal appointments in the ministry as there were already relevant forums to take up such issues. “There are rules and regulations to deal with such cases,” he added.
