Govt urged to focus on curbing power theft

Islamabad

October 27, 2018

Islamabad : The Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ICCI) has called upon the government to focus on curbing the power theft and transmission & distribution losses instead of enhancing power tariffs as these losses were costing billions of rupees to the power sector forcing the general consumers to pay heavy price in the form of high tariffs for the inefficiency of power supply companies.

ICCI President Ahmed Hassan Moughal said that the ECC has approved increase of 10 to 15 per cent for domestic consumers consuming above 300 units and 20 per cent for commercial consumers that would further enhance the cost of doing business and hike inflation for the common man.
