K-Electric has stated that all efforts are being put in to ensure regular supply of power to examination centres holding the Matriculation examinations this year. Some of the Examination Centres that had been disconnected due to non-payment have also been restored temporarily for the best interest of the students.
According to KE Spokesperson “The step has been taken for the betterment of the students, we urge the Director Schools & Education to clear their dues of PKR 202 Million for which notices have already been sent”.
K-Electric commits to provide maximum relief whereas teams will remain on standby in case any local fault occurs at any of the exam centres. It is pertinent to mention that 61% of Karachi is exempted from load-shed whereas the maximum hours of load-shed are 7.5 hours in areas with a high theft-ratio.
Power Utility also requests consumers or authorities to dial 118 or 021-99000 in case of local faults or power suspension.
