CNG stations move court against arrears LAHORE: Owners of some CNG stations have challenged in the Lahore High Court the recovery of gas infrastructure and development surcharge arrears.
Through a writ petition, several station owners plead that the federal government promulgated the Gas Infrastructure and Development Surcharge Ordinance in 2011 but the Supreme Court set it aside.
The petitioners state that the government later introduced a new law in 2015 to levy the surcharge and also started recovering arrears of the previous years. They plead that a Senate committee also declared the recovery of the arrears illegal but the amount is being included in the monthly gas bills.
The petitioners asks the court to restrain the government from recovering arrears of the gas infrastructure and development surcharge.
