What is Raast? How to create a Raast ID? A Comprehensive Guide

What is Raast?

Raast is Pakistan’s first instant payment system, allowing people, corporations, and government bodies to make end-to-end digital payments in real time. The state-of-the-art Pakistan Faster Payment System will be utilised to settle small-value retail payments in real time while also allowing all players in the financial industry, including commercial banks, microfinance institutions, government agencies, and fintechs, to have affordable and universal access (EMIs & PSPs).

Historically, Pakistan had a low level of electronic transactions for a variety of reasons, including low banking penetration, a lack of trust in and understanding of digital payment systems, restricted interoperability, difficult accessibility, and expensive transaction costs. Pakistan’s Real Time Gross Settlement System (RTGS) only allows large-value and corporate transactions to be settled instantly. However, Raast, which is Pakistan’s first Instant Payment System will greatly improve the efficiency of retail payment settlements.

Raast to Address Key Industry Issues Including,

Limited interoperability:

Financial institutions have difficulty connecting to each other because of the lack of central infrastructure.

High cost of digital payments to the end-user:

End users are charged with high fees for transferring funds digitally, thus making digital payments inaccessible for the majority of the population.

Poor user experience:

End-users have to go through a complicated process to make any digital payments.

Lack of security:

Currently available digital payment mechanisms do not render sufficient data protection and authentication.
