Category: News, SNGPL/SSGC

Minister for petroleum and natural resources Syed Naveed Qamar said on Tuesday that 1,101 sacked employees of the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines limited (SNGPL) have been restored with immediate effect with all allowances and other facilities.
The sacked employees have been reinstated under the Reinstatement Ordinance, promulgated by the President in February 2010, which said that the law is to provide relief to persons in corporations, autonomous bodies or in government service who were appointed during the period November 1, 1993 to Nov 30, 1996 and dismissed, removed or terminated or given forced golden handshake during the period Nov 1, 1996 to Dec 31, 1998.
The minister also stated that 12 per cent shares of the SNGPL would be given to employees under the Benazir Income Stock Option Scheme.
Speaking at a ceremony here on Tuesday, the minister said that the anti-labour forces wanted to stop this law, but employees have been reinstated in line with the vision of PPP.
The law also states that employees would be reinstated immediately in service on one scale higher to their substantive scale of post at the time of termination of service.
The SNGPL says that the operation would cost Rs318m (Rs158m arrears, and more than Rs159m as current year’s cost).
In a report of the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority the SNGPL had said that the reinstated employees shall be paid compensation in three installments equal to three years emoluments of pay scale in which they would be placed.
The SNGPL had asked Ogra to increase gas rates so that it could raise additional Rs235m based on the current figures of reinstated staff, but its plea was was rejected.
