FAISALABAD:


Faisalabad Electric Supply Company (FESCO) has announced it will undertake a campaign against defaulters on Friday.


Speaking at a press conference at Fesco headquarters, Fesco CEO Engr Iftikhar Ahmed said 906 major defaulters owed the company Rs136.9 million.

He said out of these, 477 domestic consumers owed Rs38.7 million, 57 commercial defaulters Rs5.915 million, 131 industrial defaulters Rs61.2 million and 242 agriculture connections Rs30 million. He also said two residential colonies owed Rs0.759 million and a temporary connection owed Rs0.361 million.

He said the electricity connections of these defaulters had already been severed. He said teams have mpw been constituted to undertake recovery of the dues. “The practice of payment by installments has been stopped,” he said.

Ahmed said Fesco will award employees producing the best results with prizes. He said government defaulters owed a “negligible amount” to the company and so a campaign was not needed against them.

He said the details of defaulters have been placed on the Fesco website (www.fesco.com.pk).

He said people to inform the Fesco officer concerned if they found one of the defaulters getting electricity though another consumer’s connection.
