JS Bank launches Roshan Digital Account


First Bank to offer RDA opening on WhatsApp

JS Bank has become the 14th bank to join the State Bank of Pakistan’s Roshan Digital Account (RDA) initiative, allowing Non-Resident Pakistanis (NRPs) to open bank accounts digitally. Uniquely, JS Bank’s offering allows NRPs to open their accounts via WhatsApp, enabling unmatched convenience for users. This is part of a multi-channel platform approach which includes JS Mobile and Internet Banking.

A launch ceremony to mark the occasion was held in Karachi. Honorable Governor (Acting) State Bank of Pakistan Dr. Murtaza Syed was prominent with his presence along with Founder JS Group Mr. Jahangir Siddiqui, President & CEO JS Bank Mr. Basir Shamsie and leading business community and corporate leaders.

Dr. Syed congratulated Mr. Jahangir Siddiqui and the management of JS Bank for launching a unique value proposition for RDA.

He expressed optimism that by joining the RDA club, JS Bank will now be able to digitally expand across borders to provide unparalleled banking and payment solutions to NRPs. He was confident that given its track record of achievements and connections across the border, this was an opportune time for JS Bank to enter the market and create a difference through innovative and out-of-the-box solutions to NRP demands.

He hoped that JS Bank would go the extra mile by taking advantage of its brand and international presence and contribute to the significant growth and success of RDA by attracting new clientele from untapped jurisdictions.
