Islamabad: The government has announced its decision to introduce a comprehensive loyalty programme in a bid to provide incentives to overseas Pakistanis sending remittances through legal channels, a news source reported.
Under the said initiative, the executive aims to provide concessions to overseas Pakistanis who send remittances on a regular basis. In addition to issuing loyalty and debit cards to these individuals, the government will launch a special app for expatriates.
The school fees for the children of the overseas Pakistanis who are a part of the loyalty programme will be reduced by half in OPF schools and colleges. Such overseas Pakistanis will also have special quotas in housing schemes.
The authorities are also considering several other proposals to provide concessions and incentives for Pakistanis using legal means to send remittances to Pakistan. A high-level committee has been formed to further review proposals for the programme.
