Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired a meeting of the cabinet committee on Energy at PM House today.
Federal Secretary Water and Power while briefing the meeting stated that last year was the most stable one for the last ten years as well as the best year for power generation due to lowest line losses in terms of technicalities and recovery.
There was 5.8% reduction in the Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT& C) losses during the year due to better monitoring and a robust strategy to eliminate corruption and leakages, the Secretary added.
The PM was informed that recoveries were increased by Rs. 51 billion while Rs.10 billion were saved due to decrease in the line losses.
