The fall in the local unit value could be attributed to the forex crunch as the foreign exchange reserves of State Bank of Pakistan have declined by $327 million by week ended November 25, 2022 leaving import cover of only one and a half months.

According to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics, the import bill of the country stood at $4.71 billion in October 2022 and with the decline in the forex reserves, the SBP has been left to cover only 1 ½ months import payments.
