Power generation: Ban imposed on new projects

The government has imposed ban on new power generation projects on the assumption that there would be surplus power in the country after completion of on-going projects.

This decision was taken at a meeting of Cabinet Committee on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CCoCPAC) presided by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. The decision of the committee was endorsed by the federal cabinet on February 13.
