High Court Orders Govt To Release Funds For Mardan Gas Project

Posted on 2019/05/23

A Peshawar High Court bench has pointed the federal government to grant funds to the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited within a month to supply natural gas to the provincial assembly’s constituency in Mardan, PK-55.

Chief Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth and Justice Abdul Shakoor delivered the directions before disposing of an appeal, which had challenged the suspension of work on the gas supply project launched during the last government.

The government had claimed that it had transferred PKR 142.882 million to the SNGPL’s assignment account for the gas project and PKR 115.28 million of it was spent on 76km gas pipeline network.

The lawyer of SNGPL declared that funds for the project were sanctioned on Jul 20, 2017, before PKR 142.88 million was released to the SNGPL as the technical supplementary grant. But now, the court has ordered the endowment to be splurged again.
