According to media reports, the SBP has taken this step to encourage the use of digital channels as a secure and alternative payment method. The move is expected to reduce the reliance on cash-based transactions and ensure a more secure and efficient payment system.

The decision comes on the heels of a resolution submitted in the Sindh Assembly, demanding measures to ensure the security of citizens and traders visiting animal markets in Karachi. The resolution called for the establishment of a task force to ensure the safety of citizens.

With this initiative, the SBP aims to promote a cashless economy and reduce the risks associated with cash transactions. The move is expected to benefit both buyers and sellers in the animal markets, ensuring a seamless and secure payment experience.

This development is seen as a significant step towards promoting digital payments in Pakistan, and is expected to contribute to the country’s overall economic growth and development.
