Raast is Pakistan's real-time gross settlement (RTGS) system for online interbank funds transfers. The system was launched by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) in 2020 to modernize and digitize the country's payment infrastructure. The system uses the latest technologies, including blockchain and biometric authentication, to provide a fast, secure, and reliable way for banks and other financial institutions to transfer funds.

One of the main benefits of Raast is its speed and efficiency. Transactions processed through Raast are settled in real-time, which means that funds are transferred almost instantly between banks. This can be particularly useful for businesses that need to make urgent or large payments. Additionally, Raast is interoperable with other domestic and international payment systems, which allows for seamless cross-border transactions. Also, the usage of blockchain and biometric authentication in the system provide an extra layer of security which makes it more secure than traditional banking methods.

Raast is a major step towards digitizing Pakistan's banking and financial systems, in line with the government's goal of promoting financial inclusion and reducing dependency on cash transactions. It is designed to improve the overall banking experience for customers and enable businesses to operate more efficiently.
