KARACHI: The Pak Rupee gained three paisas against dollar on Friday owing to inflows of export receipts and foreign remittances, dealers said.
The rupee closed at Rs155.39 to the dollar from previous day’s closing of Rs155.42 in interbank foreign exchange market.
The dealers said that foreign inflows and export receipts helped the local unit to appreciate early in the day. However, demand for the greenback for import payments due to next two weekly holidays restricted the rupee appreciation to three paisas.
