The dollar is being sold between Rs238 to 242 in the open market, the forex dealers said.
In the past five weeks, the rupee has dropped value consecutively every day.
Pakistan and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have yet to finalise schedule for talks as the government’s request for lender’s mission remained unanswered.
According to sources, the government had requested the lender to send its mission to Pakistan at the earliest to conclude a long-awaited agreement to revive the loan programme.
