PASIG CITY – The Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) expressed full support to accelerating the Pasig City Government’s digitalization thrust towards the efficient delivery of responsive public services in the city.

LANDBANK President and CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo met with Pasig City Mayor Victor Ma. Regis “Vico” N. Sotto on 07 November 2022, to discuss potential partnerships to digitize local processes and promote contactless payments in public markets and transport.

The principals discussed providing local market vendors with electronic wallets, such as the versatile all-in-one mobile payment application LANDBANKPay, for more efficient and convenient payment of goods.

The City can likewise consider implementing the Automated Fare Collection System (AFCS) for commuters using the LANDBANK prepaid contactless cards for convenient and safe cashless payments in Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs), with the LGU willing to provide free rides for Pasigueños.

LANDBANK currently provides the City Government of Pasig with digital banking facilities designed to improve its operational efficiency. These include the LANDBANK Link.BizPortal that allows residents to pay their real property taxes, business permits, and other financial obligations to the City Government anytime and anywhere, without the need to physically line up at the city hall.

LANDBANK and the Pasig City LGU have also been working closely for the efficient and convenient distribution of cash assistance to local senior citizens and student scholars. Beneficiaries receive their cash grants in a timely manner from the City Government through LANDBANK Cash Cards.

Beneficiaries can withdraw their cash grants for free from 78 LANDBANK ATMs or via over-the-counter at 11 LANDBANK branches in Pasig City, as well as from ATMs in 7-Eleven convenience stores near them.

The LANDBANK Cash Cards can also be used to make cashless purchases in groceries, drugstores, and other accepting merchants via Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals.
