Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan said that 82,728 Roshan Digital Accounts (RDA) opened so far in 97 countries of different continents by the overseas Pakistanis.

$436 million through these facilities have been remitted in digital accounts. On average, Pakistani expatriates are remitting around $6 to $7 million every day.

The prime minister was presiding over a meeting to review the progress of the facilities made available for the overseas Pakistanis under the Roshan Digital Account.


The facility was introduced under the vision of PM Imran and received encouraging response from overseas Pakistanis.

The expatriates from Saudi Arabia (KSA), The United Arab Emirates (UAE), United Kingdom (UK), and the United States of America (USA) had taken lead in utilising the facility.

The participants were apprised of the cooperation of ministries of Foreign Affairs and Finance, Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development as well as the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) in the success of Roshan Digital Account.

The Roshan Digital Account (RDA) is the brainchild of the government of Pakistan and has been initiated by the State Bank of Pakistan.


The RDA initiative aims at connecting the diaspora with Pakistan financially by facilitating their remittances and will operate in collaboration with eight leading commercial banks operating in Pakistan.

The eight leading banks have been providing innovative banking solutions for millions so that they can open an account in any bank through an entirely digital and online process; without visiting a bank branch, embassy or consulate. All they need to do is submit the basic set of information and documents.
