KARACHI: The Pak Rupee gained 10 paisas against dollar on Tuesday owing to inflows and lackluster demand for import payment.
The rupee ended Rs154.41 to the dollar from previous day’s closing of Rs154.51 in interbank foreign exchange market.
Currency dealers said that the market witnessed inflows under the heads of workers’ remittances and export receipts. On the other hand due to coronavirus threat the importers are reluctant to purchase dollars for Chinese imports.
