Gas suspension affects textile sector output

May '11
The Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) has been suspending gas supply three days a week for the last nine months. This is affecting the output in the export-oriented value added textile sector, especially in Punjab, according to Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PHMA).

Demanding Government intervention for regular supply of gas and electricity to the textile industries, over 600 factories in the Punjab region have announced a three-day closure of their units.

The PHMA said that gas-shedding for longer period may plunge the rural labour-intensive value added textile sector and is likely to cause industrial unrest, as the textile industry is the source of livelihood for millions of workers in the country.

The three-day weekly gas suspension plan has hit productivity, exports, and even Government revenues, the PHMA added.

The PHMA has also brought to the Government's notice, the recent increase in gas and electricity bills. Expressing its concern, the association said that the Government should withdraw the increase in gas and electricity bills without any further delay.

The Government must ensure regular gas and electricity supply in order to avoid any negative impact on the export-oriented textile sector, the PHMA said.
