    you proved my point . You need the buy the gas from India at much cheaper prices now to help your situation as much as possible and you need to do whatever alternative plan investments in parallel. Not say NO to the offer . Yeah e can guarantee you will have this plan done in under a year. They just have lay a pipeline into your nearest distribution station across the border. All the capacity build out is in place on india's side and up and running. Gas is also not difficult to transport. We do it on trains here...

    I am not the one who will decide.... So should I expect this proposal/project be finalized within a year or two?

    I know you nor I are the " decider" :), the Pakistani intellectuals want it- but this " what's janta's impression" is what holds the weak politicians back. You are paying 3 x times to get it now from other sources...!

    Yup under a year from contract execution. Very plausible. You also have to understand this emmie, building the kind of alternative sources is very costly and you guys are bit cash strapped . You'll probably hate me saying this, but that military budget is over the top ( that's % to GDP).

    NO to any energy imports from india, it would be suicidal to trust the banias from new delhi.

    We have enough of our own energy resources, only problem in exploiting these resources is Zardari and his cronies, and their days are numbered.

    No, many projects are in pipeline but yes they will take time...

    I would really appreciate if you export electricity rather than gas... If am not mistaken there's a proposal of 500 MW from your side, can be increased to 1000MW... IMO this one would serve the cause better, less time and more help. But I don't think native would allow such a deal.

    Sorry... i reverse my advise:

    Pakistan shall continue funding and facilitating Indian business and transit and keep taxing Pakistanis for that.

    If Indian transit needs grow than Pakistan shall take more loans from IMF.

    I hope IMF will listen and announce new loan for Pakistan and I hope Zardari listen and make legal to import from India.

    Happy!!

    I'm also happy to buy 3x cheaper gas from India.

    @ itsme,

    Don't worry about the money:

    1- We would get our billions of $$ back from Swiss and other foreign bank accounts.
    2- We would tax the $hit out of rich people (next govt. would do it).
    3- We would encourage foreign investment from all over the world, except india, especially from China, middle east and from overseas Pakistanis.

    Some fun facts:

    Pakistan's Natural gas - production:

    42.9 billion cu m (2011 est.)

    India's Natural gas - production:

    52.5 billion cu m (2011 est.)

    https://www.cia.gov/library/publica...stan&countryCode=pk&regionCode=sas&rank=21#pk

    Also consider that Pakistan's land area is about 1/5th of India's, & 1/7th of India's population.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    India's net natural gas exports:

    0 cu m (2010 est.)

    India's net natural gas imports:

    12.15 billion cu m (2010 est.)

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pakistan's net natural gas exports:

    0 cu m (2010 est.)

    Pakistan's net natural gas imports:

    0 cu m (2010 est.)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Why on earth would Pakistan import gas from India? India (unlike, for e.g. Iran) is a huge net importer of gas.

    India won't have any energy to export if it is truly developing. Hundreds of Millions are still without gas or electricity in India.
