Slash in gas supply causes 450 textile units to remain closed
Nov '10
The gas shedding is going to affect 450 industrial plants from the textile processing, printing, dyeing and several other sectors of Faisalabad region as these plants will remain closed for three days, starting from today. The slash in the gas supply will seriously influence thousands of workers, who earn their livelihood on a daily basis.

According to the Acting Regional Chairman of All Pakistan Textile Processing Mills Association – Mian Ajmal Farooq, shutting down of the sector in Faisalabad for a single day is likely to cause a loss of Rs 4 billion. This loss is going to mount up to Rs 32 billion till 22nd November. The Pakistani Government could not keep its pledge of one-day closure every week.

He further added that the current schedule of gas shedding has severely impaired the textile sector and workers associated with the industry. As the industry had been closed for a week's time, it was not possible to administer the business dealings as well as the export obligations.
