KARACHI: Sindh becomes the first province to acquire the federal government’s license for establishing a provincial power grid company, enabling it to set up grid stations and transmission lines.

This was announced by Sindh’s Power Minister Imtiaz Shaikh, who added under the federal government's license, the province through the Sindh Transmission and Despatch Company (STDC) will be able to efficiently transmit power produced in the province.

Imtiaz said Sindh had become the first province given a license for setting up a grid company. Crediting persistent efforts of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah for the development, the provincial power minister termed it a good news for the people of the province.

Imtiaz said the excellent performance of the 132kv transmission line at Nooriabad laid by the provincial government paved the way for the federal government to grant license for the grid company. The minister said the STDC will transmit power both nationwide through the NTDC as well as sell it to local consumers. For provincial consumers like K Electric and others, the company will set up transmission lines to despatch power, the minister added.
