The rupee posted consecutive 23 recovery sessions (+9.0%, PKR 25.4) against dollar since Sep 5, 2023. This is the highest number of consecutive positive sessions against the dollar.

In interbank market, the greenback depreciated by Rs1 to close at Rs280.50. 

The free fall of the dollar started after the government launched a crackdown on dollars’ smuggling and hoarding. The operation has full support from the military leadership, who has vowed to curb spectrum of illegal activities to rid of economic losses.

Lately, Pakistani rupee emerged as world's top-performing currency against USD, with staggering appreciation of nearly 10 percent.
