KARACHI: The Pak Rupee ended five paisas down against dollar on Thursday owing to demand for import payment, dealers said.
The rupee ended Rs154.27 to the dollar from previous day’s closing of Rs154.22 in interbank foreign exchange market.
The dealers said that earlier in the date the rupee gained value owing to inflows of workers remittances and export receipts. However, later import payment demand deteriorated value of the local currency.
The rupee gained values during the past few days owing to lower demand for import payment after coronavirus spread in many countries.
The exchange rate in open market witnessed no change in rupee value. The buying and selling of dollar was recorded at Rs154.00/Rs154.30, the same previous day’s level, in cash ready market.
