Google glitch shows incorrect Pakistani rupee value against US dollar
Karachi: Google's online exchange rate converter experienced undetected technical glitch on Wednesday as it showed incorrect values of the US dollar and other currencies against the Pakistani rupee.

The Google glitch displayed the Pakistani currency conversion rate to one US dollar to be Rs 76 instead of Rs 139.


The values of the euro, the United Arab Emirates (UAE/Emirati) dirham, and the Saudi riyal in terms of the Pakistani rupee were shown on Google as Rs87.01, Rs20.76, and Rs20.33, respectively.

However, 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 glitch was fixed by the online giant search engine after the news went viral.
