Karachi to Face 12-Hour Gas Load-shedding  

The Sui Southern Gas Company (SSGC) has announced a suspension of gas supply to multiple areas in Karachi, including Defence Housing Authority (DHA) and Korangi to facilitate the installation of a new pipeline. 

This new gas distribution pipeline project, stretching from Azeempura to Jam Sadiq Bridge, will require work at two critical points. 

Consequently, gas supply will be completely halted on June 23, from 8 am to 8 pm, affecting all sectors of Korangi, including industrial and domestic areas, as well as DHA and its neighboring regions.

The affected areas include Defence View, Manzoor Colony, Akhtar Colony, Kashmir Colony, Mehmoodabad, Azam Basti, Qayyumabad, DHA Phase 2 Extension, Phase 4, Phase 5 and Extension, Phase 7 and Extension, and Phase 8, including Creek Vista and Emaar.

In a related move, SSGC has been active in curbing gas theft. Their teams recently conducted raids in residential areas of Sindh and Balochistan, removing 770 illegal gas connections. 

First Information Reports (FIRs) were filed against those involved in stealing gas for commercial purposes.

In Karachi, the theft control teams dismantled 570 illegal underground and overhead domestic connections in Federal B Area and Liaquatabad. Most cases involved residents who had unlawfully extended their gas connections. 

One raid led to an FIR against a bakery owner in North Karachi, who had illegally connected his high voltage generator directly to the gas line.
