Cabinet approves digital payments at expressways via LANKAQR

(UTV | COLOMBO) – The Cabinet of Ministers has granted approval to a proposal tabled by Minister of Highways Johnston Fernando for the digitalization of payments at expressways through LANKAQR.

The Cabinet Paper said the government joined hands with all the licensed financial institutions in the endeavour of popularizing, and encouraging the LANKAQR payment method with the objective of minimising the use of physical money in Sri Lanka.

As one such initiative, it has been proposed to introduce LANKAQR for manual paying counters at expressways managed by the Road Development Authority.

The drivers utilizing the expressways will be able to pay the due amount within 8-10 seconds by scanning the QR code through the LANKAQR mobile payment app regardless of the bank.
