KARACHI : Sui Southern Gas Company’s Customer Relations Department (CRD) Task Force conducted a raid against illegal connections in two of Karachi’s populated areas, Rabia City (Gulistan-e-Johar, Block-18) and Shah Latif Town situated on National Highway.  In Rabia City, the Task Force dismantled 400 illegal connections of those inhabitants who were involved in direct gas use through the Company’s distribution lines. The residents were found using at least four connections from one point.

These illegal connections were resulting in the loss of 22,576 mcf gas which in monetary terms translates to losses of Rs. 3.6 million per annum.

Earlier on August 19, the Task Force also cracked down on direct gas use in Shah Latif Town, where they removed around 2,700 illegal connections. The illegal connections were resulting in the loss of 152,388 mcf gas which amounts to Rs. 2 million per annum.

The residents found using gas directly from the Company’s main supply lines, were asked by the CRD team, during the raid to settle their arrears immediately with the Company in order to avoid future disconnections.
