KARACHI: The rupee weakened against the dollar at Rs138.85/Rs139.35 in the inter-bank market on Wednesday compared with Tuesday's close of Rs138.8/Rs139.3, according to forex.pk. Last year in November, the rupee fell to an all-time low at Rs144 against the dollar in intra-day trading before recovering to Rs139.05 in the sixth round of devaluation since December 2017. Cumulatively, the rupee has lost 31.8% of its value in the last 13 months. In October 2018, a slump in the value of the rupee came after the government decided to knock at the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) door to avoid default on import payments and debt repayments.
