ISLAMABAD - Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority is likely to take necessary action against those CNG stations found involved in over-charging from the consumers without notified new CNG prices on 4th May 2011. According to OGRA, the authority notified new CNG prices on 4th May 2011, which were effective from 5th May 2011. Hence in order to have a vigilant check on CNG stations with respect to consumer price, OGRA conducted surprise inspection on 4th May 2011, of CNG stations of different areas such as Rawalpindi/ Islamabad, Taxila/Wah Cantt, M-2, Kot Momin and adjoining. In all 75 CNG stations were inspected and many of them were found charging consumers the new price, so causing inconvenience to general public/ consumers. OGRA has taken strict notice of this malpractice and has decided to take all necessary possible actions against violating CNG stations in accordance to OGRA Ordinance and Pakistan CNG Rules, 1992. OGRA is in process of issuing show cause notices to the violating CNG stations, before imposition of fine and further action, statement reads. When contacted market sources, they all said that it was a normal practice that when price increase occurred, stations generally increased price well before its effective date needed to be punished severely.
