The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on Monday announced that over 10 million customers have registered to use its instant payment system 'Raast', launched in February.

“Another milestone achieved by SBP in the journey of digitization, as the number of Raast IDs registration crosses 10 million mark since its launch,” said SBP in a tweet, adding that the aggregated value of Person to Person (P2P) transactions using the Raast system by customers has crossed Rs36 billion.

Back in February, the SBP launched Raast to offer instant and free P2P payment services with the objective of promoting digital financial services and financial inclusion. Through Raast, bank customers can send and receive funds in their accounts using their bank’s mobile app, internet banking or over-the-counter services.

Banks also allow customers to create a Raast ID by linking their preferred International Bank Account Number (IBAN) with their registered mobile phone number. Users can then share their Raast ID with others to receive funds in their account. Bank customers can use Raast for sending or receiving funds using their IBANs even if they do not have a Raast ID.

The service was developed in collaboration with Karandaaz Pakistan, a not-for-profit company promoting access to finance for SMEs and financial inclusion for individuals.

Well done. 1 out of over 250 crore citizens are using it. 0.004% to be precise. I hope SBP will find something more substantive to announce and be happy about...?
