KARACHI:
The depreciation of the Pakistan Rupee against the US dollar continued on Monday as the rupee sunk to a historic low of Rs194 against the greenback in the inter-bank market.

The rupee had closed at Rs192.53 on Friday, according to the central bank. However, today it shed Rs1.70 against the dollar to touch Rs194.23.

According to experts, the balance of payment crisis which might worsen further amid a potential hike in energy prices is mounting pressure on the rupee. This potential hike would affect Pakistan significantly as it relies heavily on imported energy. The energy import bill is already up by 72% in the first 10-month of the current fiscal year 2022.

Similarly, the country's foreign exchange reserves have depleted to a 22-month low at $10.3 billion. Therefore, the country's import cover has been reduced to just 45 days at present compared to the usual 90 days import cover.

It's going to be 500 by the time this bunch of crooks is done.... Or even mode possible .... A total collapse. Hyper inflation. Perhaps we can eat all the Patwari....

Not even Hafeez Sheikh will be able to help here.

Do the right thing PDM. Get rid of the subsidies and end up in the dustbin of history.

They are not even trying to do anything to stop this slide.. Some underhanded deal to let PKR cross 200 ? Does not make any sense otherwise.
