About the unique features of the RDA, Dr Baqir said it offers flexibility in regulation without compromising on the standards and allows complete freedom to remit any amount, any time without any permission. He shared with the participants that the State Bank of Pakistan plans to introduce more such initiatives to facilitate the overseas Pakistanis. HC Moazzam Khan termed the RDA a remarkable initiative of the Government of Pakistan which not only fulfils a long overdue demand of the overseas Pakistanis but it would also go a long way in attracting remittances and investment to Pakistan. He noted that the initiative would integrate the Pakistani diaspora into the Pakistani banking and digital payments system by providing a full range of banking services.
