These members include Dr Noman Ahmed, Barrister Abdul Sattar Pirzada, Muhammad Rizwan Rauf, Tariq Hussain, Asad Ali Shah, Simi Sadaf Kamal, Muhammad Suleman Chandio and the Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry president.
According to the notification, two DMC chairmen may be invited to every board meeting as observers on a rotation basis and they may also be a part of any sub-committee formed by the KWSB.
The Terms of Reference (ToRs) of the KWSB board of directors have also been finalised by the Sindh government, which are as under:
The reconstituted board of directors of the KWSB will ultimately reduce the powers of the managing director as he will not be able to solely take and implement decisions regarding the KWSB policies.
