Is the new managing director (MD) of the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC) being hired against a monthly salary of $15,000?

A summary for appointment of the NTDC managing director would be presented to the federal cabinet on Tuesday. The NTDC Board has proposed the name of Aizaz Ahmad for the office of the managing director with consensus. The federal cabinet would decide the name for the post on the basis of a summary submitted by the Power Division. 

According to sources, Aizaz has demanded $15,000 per month salary for the post that means around Rs2.4 million in Pakistani currency. He has also demanded that he should be given one extra salary on termination of his job. However, the NTDC Board has said the salary demanded by Aizaz is much higher than the market salary for this job. 

The federal cabinet would be presented four names for the post: Aizaz, Mujahid Pervez Chattha, Muhammad Azeem Asif and Mujahid Islam Billa.
