Kerala IT department has integrated an e-payment mechanism to its existing e-procurement system wherein bidders can make online payment towards tender document fees and EMD. Moreover Government can make online refunds of EMD amount to the unsuccessful bidder’s bank account in a time bound manner.
This move is aimed at further enhancing transparency and for ensuring complete confidentiality and anonymity in the Government tendering process. The integration of e-payment system will replace the present, conventional system of payment of tender document fees and Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) through Demand Drafts. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will formally launch e-payment system in government procurements on April 17, 2013.
