CBA receives payments for fines on traffic violations
Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 8 / Trend H. Valiyev /
The Azerbaijani Central Bank (CBA) has put a new module into operation for centralized mass payment information systems (APUS). APUS helps manage payments for traffic violation fines, Sinam Company said.
The information system will accept online credit card payments at www.apus.az or cash in all Azerpoct offices and bank branches, including regional branches connected to the information system. The technical implementation of the system is provided by Sinam.
Using the APUS payment system complies with state policy on e-government.
The first invoice is issued with a 10 percent discount. If not paid within three days, the first invoice will be replaced by a full invoice. If the full invoice is not paid, the amount of the fine is increased.
The new payment model will greatly facilitate the life of the driver, as there is no need for paying in one bank and providing a receipt to the law-enforcement bodies. Thus payment information is included in the database of the Main State Road Police under the Interior Ministry within 30 seconds. All the organizations and service providers registered in APUS will receive similar information.
The APUS system is introduced by the Azerbaijani Central Bank with Sinam's technical support to ensure centralized payments. About 37 banks have been connected to APUS since 2008.
