The government’s emergency measures, which included a promise to further crack down on smuggling and the use of illicit money transfer services like hawala and hundi, did not receive a strong response on the currency market, as the rupee lost ground on Tuesday Morning.

One US dollar cost 83 paisas more in the early interbank rates to Rs227.25. from Friday’s close.

Last week, on the penultimate day of the year, which was also the last trading day, the rupee fell to Rs226.43 in the interbank market.

Despite the fact that Monday, January 2 was a bank holiday, the dollar continued to fall as soon as the market opened on Tuesday morning.

This was in response to news that Pakistan’s currency reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan had fallen below the level of reserves held by commercial banks.
