State Bank of Pakistan in collaboration with 1Link has launched a Home Remittance Product “Sohni Dharti Remittance Program to incentivize Non-Resident Pakistanis.
Sohni Dharti Remittance Program (SDRP) is a point-based loyalty scheme for our remitters who work abroad and send money to their loved ones in Pakistan through banking channels or exchange companies. The sole purpose of this scheme is to increase the volume of remittances.
