Last night Dollar rate at Google’s online exchange rate converter experienced glitches. The abnormal swing in the currency value against Pakistani rupee left people in frenzy.
The data was proved incorrect by Bloomberg, which, on its portal, indicated that the values of the US dollar, euro, and the Emirati dirham in terms of the Pakistani rupee were Rs139.38, Rs159.04, Rs37.95, and Rs37.16, respectively.
The same was also confirmed by other exchange rate providers like XE, which showed the dollar rate at an unaffected Rs139.88, as recorded earlier in the day.
Before the search engines could have reached the bug, people went reacting to the dollar rate fiasco:
