Islamabad: The price of US Dollar has touched the highest peak, making the currency unit equivalent to 98 rupees in Pakistan.
The American dollar touched this historical height on Tuesday, depreciating the Rupee further.
Sources said that the fresh development is bound to hamper economic growth and affect overseas Pakistanis and students studying abroad. It would also adversely hit businesses by multiplying its cost and push up inflation.
It was suggested that the government should quickly come into action to arrest depreciation of Rupee and protect national economy.
