Gas load-shedding: Devastating for textile industry
18
Dec '09
Lack of regular gas supply to the textile industry forced it to face losses of about Rs. one billion in a month, said the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA). Moreover, the scheduled, two-day load-management of gas compelled around 200 textile units in Punjab and NWFP Zones to close down about.

Mr. Guhar Ijaz, Chairman, APTMA Punjab said that the gas supply to the industry was not according to the schedule that already had been prepared by the Textile Ministry with stakeholders, as the two-day load-shedding in a week, which had been decided for textile industry, has now been increased up to four-days, he added.

The industry would suffer more losses along with further closure of textile units, if the gas supply is extending from 8 to 15 days a month, apprehended the Chairman. In order to share gas load-shedding on equitable basis, the association had divided the industrial units of Punjab and NWFP in to four zones.
