A two-member divisional bench of the IHC comprising of Justice Riaz Ahmed Khan and Justice Anwarul Haq Qadri resumed the hearing over a review petition submitted by the Federal Ministry of Petroleum against the court’s earlier order which had declared the imposition of surcharge in the price of CNG as unlawful.
The divisional bench overruled the earlier decision of its single member bench and allowed for the collection of surcharge on CNG until a detailed verdict was issued on the matter.
A price hike of at least Rs 13.29 would come into affect after the court’s decision.
A single member bench of the IHC comprising of Justice Shaukat A. Siddiqui had declared the imposition of surcharge on the price of CNG as unlawful on Feb 1 this year.
The court’s decision was challenged by the Federal Ministry of Petroleum and a petition was filed.
