The IMF on Monday revived Pakistan’s loan programme and its board approved the $1.17 billion loan disbursement thus paving the way for economic headway of otherwise forex reserves-starved country whose currency was fast losing its value. 

It was hoped that after the IMF loan approval, the Pakistani rupee would be appreciated considerably but it could not happen. Though the rupee is making gains but the large-scale destruction by recent floods and rains which have caused massive loss of crops, livestock, bridges, and roads, and the displacement of 30 million people, is hampering rupee’s recovery as country’s exports are bound to suffer and the country has to bear enormous rehabilitation expenses. 

Besides this, the State Bank does not want a significant dollar depreciation believing that the exporters would get benefits from it and off-load their dollar holdings.
