Power from India: Pak sets ball rolling

Islamabad: Pakistan will soon issue tenders for the import of 500 MW of electricity from India after the proposal is aproved by the Federal Cabinet.

The plan is likely to be approved in the Cabinet's next meeting, Water and Power Secretary Qazi Imtiaz Ahmed said. "We will invite tenders from power supply companies of India soon," he said.

The two countries have decided to build a 45-km, 220 KV line within six months of the signing of a formal agreement on the proposal. The agreement will be valid for five years and negotiable for another five years or more. PTI
