Central Bank of Afghanistan to ban the use of Pakistani currency soon

The Central Bank of Afghanistan has initiated the promotion of the Afghani currency in the country's southwestern region since last week. Most probably, the use of Pakistani currency will soon be banned. The Central Bank has further instructed the residents of the country's southwestern provinces to cease their commercial transactions using the Pakistani currency.

The residents have been given two and a half months to conduct their commercial transactions using the Afghani currency and are further advised to avoid dealing with foreign currencies.

Moreover, the announcement specifically warned the residents of Kandahar, Uruzgan, Helmand, Zabul and Dykundi provinces and asked them to make trade transactions through national currency only.
