Gold rate in Pakistan has reached an all-time high of Rs. 230,000 per tola on 9 May 2023 for 24-karat of the previous metal due to the political uncertainty that ensued after arrest of former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman, Imran Khan.
According to the details, the Gold rate in Pakistan reached Rs. 230,000 per tola (24-karat), which is an increase of Rs. 7,000 since yesterday (8 May 2023), while 10 grams of the gold was being sold for Rs. 210,833.
It is pertinent to mention that gold price in Pakistan has been increasing persistently and hitting new a new high every other day due to the country’s worsening economic conditions.
