Google’s wrong dollar rate against PKR, leaves Pakistanis in frenzy

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 dollar fall was due to a bug in the systems of Morningstar – a financial services company from which all major search engines seek their exchange rate data. The glitch has been fixed.

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.
