LAHORE: Azaz Ahmad on Thursday became the third managing director of the National Transmission and Despatch Company (NTDC) to quit the job during the last seven months. The Ministry of Energy did not name Mr Ahmad’s successor till the filing of this report.

Mr Ahmad joined the company on Aug 4 and survived only three months on the job. He was appointed on a permanent basis after a lengthy search and process of advertising and interviews. He was supposed to serve the organisation for next three years.

He had followed the appointment of Muhammad Ayub, who held the charge between May 20 and August 3 — around two-and-a-half months — and was reverted to his post of Deputy MD. Mr Ayub, one of the senior officials, was given additional charge after Khawaja Riffat Hassan was removed from the post.

According to the official notification, the National Transmission and Despatch Company Board of Directors in its 309th meeting, held on November 3, approved Mr Ahmad’s resignation. It also approved waiver of one-month notice period after the deduction of leave balance as per employment agreement on compassionate grounds on the account of “certain family health issues”.

In an office memorandum, the National Transmission and Despatch Company told its employees that Power Division has been asked for the appointment of the new MD and directed its employees to continue working under the standard operating procedure already in vogue.
