Sep 06, 2019: The federal government on Friday approached the Supreme Court of Pakistan for urgent hearing over the Gas Infrastructure Development Cess (GIDC) so the matter should be decided according to the law and Constitution.

The Attorney General submitted the application for urgent hearing and stated that cases regarding GIDC were pending since 2017 and due to these case huge revenue of the government was struck.
