Expecting a shortfall in the amount of money sent back to the country by migrant workers because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the government decided to offer an incentives package to overseas Pakistanis to encourage them to use banking channels to transfer remittances.
The package included tax exemptions and other incentives under a special loyalty programme.
