PTI government launches yet another initiative for the overseas Pakistanis
State Bank of Pakistan has launched the ‘Roshan Digital Accounts (RDA) for Non-Resident Pakistanis’ (NRPs) to enable them to remotely open bank accounts in Pakistan through online digital portals of your bank without physically visiting branches.
Using their Roshan Digital Accounts, NRPs can now avail digital banking facilities, including access to online banking, domestic funds transfer, utility bills, and tuition fee payment in Pakistan, as well as investments in government bills, stock exchange, and the real estate sector with the option of full repatriation.
To make the scheme a success it is imperative that participating banks provide excellent user experience and convenience to prospective and existing customers while maintaining high service standards.
In this regard, the central bank issued instructions for banks to ensure strict compliance. Development of RDA Portals and Mobile Apps
