On the other hand, the greenback gained Rs1 in Open Market and it is trading at Rs229.50.

As per the economic experts, the downfall of Pakistani rupee against the US dollar is due to the political uncertainty in the country.

The decline in the rupee’s value has accelerated after rating agency “Fitch” downgraded Pakistan’s rating, increased Euro-bond yields and no active supply from the State Bank.
