One of the biggest casualties was the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP), whose shares fell 5 per cent to 46.93 Pakistani rupees.
“There was talk today that the banking sector’s tax rate may be increased from 35 per cent to 40 per cent, so banking stocks, especially NBP, were hit,” said Atif Zafar, an analyst at the JS Global financial services company.
Trading volume rose to 457.9 million shares, compared with 409.3 million shares traded on Wednesday.
The Pakistan rupee ended slightly weaker at 90.54/64 to the dollar, compared with Wednesday’s close of 90.30/35.
