These encashed prize bonds can also be converted into special savings certificates or defence savings certificates.
According to the SBP, prize bonds can be encashed from the SBP’s banking corporation offices or commercial banks. Necessary instructions have also been issued to the banks in this regard.
It is to be noted that after June 30, 2023, these prize bonds will not be usable and will not be encashed or converted.
