Pakistani rupee gained 5 paisas against dollar on Wednesday to close at Rs138.80 compared with the last closing of Rs138.85 in inter-bank market as the demand and supply situation remained balanced.
The rupee was under pressure given the rising tension between the two countries, but intervention by International community resulted in prevalence of positive sentiments in the market.
The demand by the importers and corporate sector was offset by flow of remittances and export receipts.
