KE increases duration of power outages


The K-Electric has extended the duration of unannounced load shedding in different parts of Karachi amid sweltering weather.

According to sources, the duration of load-shedding in several areas of the city has been extended up to 10 hours, while the areas exempted from load-shedding were also experiencing load-shedding daily.

Nazimabad, Lines Area, North Nazimabad, Saadi Town, Surjani Town, Baldia Town and other parts of the city are experiencing over 10 hours of load shedding daily.

However, the power distribution company carried out 12 to 15 hours load shedding in the industrial areas daily.

Meanwhile, irked by continued unannounced load shedding and over billing, a large number of people staged a protest demonstration and besieged K-Electric office near Gole Market in Nazimabad.
