ISLAMABAD: On the directions of Federal Minister for Energy Umar Ayub and Energy Division Secretary Irfan Ali, one window teams have been formed to restore electricity to the areas affected by non-payment of bills. They will restore connections on the spot.

The purpose of forming one window teams was to restore the connections of those people, whose electricity lines were disconnected due to non-payment of bills in order to bring them back into the system.

Pepco has issued clear and detailed instructions in this regard.

According to the plan, the drive has started from Sukkur Electric Power Company (Sepco). Pepco has formed five special teams for Sepco for the restoration of electricity connections in several villages and towns.

The Pepco teams will be accompanied by staff of the relevant operation circles and bank representatives for collection of payments.

The teams will go on a two-day visit to the affected areas and will give a detailed announcement about their campaign from mosques after prayers.

The services of elders would be required for the purpose.

The teams have been authorised to install new connections on instalments as well as making instalments of unpaid bills.

The electricity will be restored after paying 30 per cent instalments.

No consumer will have to go out of his area and every team’s in charge will give a weekly report to Pepco, which will forward it to the Power Division.
