The SSGC has decided to disconnect gas supplies to different government sector hospitals if they fail to settle their gas bills by October 10, according to a press statement issued by the company. These hospitals have been constantly defaulting as a result of which their outstanding dues have been accumulating. These defaulting institutes located in Karachi with their outstanding amounts include; National Institute of Child Health (Rs. 5,261,037), Abdul Majeed Sehbehani Hospital (Rs 2,653,551), ICU Trauma Center and Cardiac Emergency Centre (Rs. 3,311,609), Trauma Center, Karachi Civil Hospital (Rs. 27,828,664), Sindh Government Hospital (Rs 2,632,370) and Civil Surgeon Hospital (Rs 3,398,122). The above defaulting institutes were repeatedly served notices by SSGC to settle their dues. Yet they failed to comply to the notices. A final notice with due date being October 10, 2020 has now been served to them. Failure to settle their dues with SSGC on or before this date would mean gas disconnection for these hospitals.
