It further said that SBP is working on taking this initiative to new heights and continuing to target the needs of Pakistanis that are abroad.
In November 2022, a total of $5.4 billion foreign exchange inflows through RDAs were recorded. The deposits under RDA registered inflows were estimated at $141 million as compared to $146 million in the month of October.
