JI moves IHC against taxes on electricity bills


Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has moved Islamabad High Court against collecting taxes on the electricity bills.

The JI leader challenged the collection of various taxes on electricity bills by the Islamabad Electric Supply Company .The plaintiff in his plea stated that IESCO is collecting ‘irrelevant’ taxes through electricity bills, which has broken the backbone of the masses of the country.

It has almost become impossible for the masses to pay their electricity bills. After the initial arguments, IHC Judge Gul Hassan Aurangzeb issued notices to IESCO, FBR and the secretary of water and power.
