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.
It is a unique and first-ever smartphone (Android and iOS) Mobile application, available in both English and Urdu languages that tracks and updates every remittance a remitter sends home. It also awards the remitter with reward points, which can be redeemed for free of cost services at multiple Public Service Entities listed below.

Remitter will earn reward points based on a certain percentage of every remittance one sends. There are three rewarding tiers: Green, Gold and Platinum. Reward points will be given to remitters based on the following tier criteria:
|Category||Annual Remittance Amount (in one Fiscal year)*||Reward Points Earning (% of Remittance Amount)**|
