Punjab speeded its attempts to establish a T&D company under the National Transmission and Deployment Company (NTDC).
A summary of the Punjab Provincial Grid Company’s permission has been begun by the provincial energy department, and the provinces are now examining it.
“Sindh has already set up her own carrier. The 18th amendment requires the same structure. We follow up on the summary provided to Chief Minister of Punjab, Usman Buzdar for approval,” stated the Minister of Energy.
