The Perak Syariah Court is among the first in Malaysia to introduce the e-payment initiative effective July 1 in line with the government’s requirement for more transactions to be done online and cash-free during the pandemic.
Chief Justice Perak Syariah Judiciary Department, Dato’ Asa’ari Haji Mohd Yazid launched the e-payment initiative today at the banquet hall of the Perak Syariah Court.
According to him, the e-payment options include debit card, credit card and online banking in collaboration with Bank Islam.
“This method will facilitate the payment at counters and reduce outstanding payment. E-payments are accepted for case registration and fine for offences like gambling and alcohol consumption among others,” Dato’ Asa’ari explained.
Meanwhile, General Manager of Deposit & Cash Management of Bank Islam, Haji Mohd Noor Jab added that Bank Islam offers online payments via three services: JomPay, Snap & Pay and merchant terminal.
“With this, one can now opt to pay online besides by cash,” he stated.
