Taliban bans use of Pakistani Rupee

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 01 Oct 2022, 09:57 pm

The Taliban administration of Afghanistan has banned the use of Pakistani Rupee in the country.

The new order will come to effect from Oct 1.

According to a letter that Khaama Press has obtained, the Taliban Intelligence Agency’s Anti-Money Laundering Branch declared to the Association of Money Exchange Dealers, that the use of Pakistani Rupees in financial transactions in Afghanistan has been “completely banned.”

The letter, which was released on Saturday, October 1, states that all financial transactions, including but not limited to transfers, trade, and currency exchange, are disallowed, the news agency reported.

The Taliban came to power in Afghanistan last year.
