According to details, on January 28 this year, the Governor of the State Bank of Pakistan, Baqir Raza, announced a rate hike of 13.25 percent, after which investors appealed to the government to reduce interest rates.
Meanwhile, the SBP had announced a 0.75 percent reduction in interest rates on March 17 when the nation’s economy suffered due to the Coronavirus. After that, the interest rate was 12.50%.
Exactly one week later, the SBP once again reduced interest rates by 1.5 percent, and on March 24, the interest rate reached 11 percent.
