Syed A. Mateen | 11 years ago | Reply Why PEPCO did at the first instance gave so much leniency to Provincial Governments and FATA? When an ordinary citizen does not pay his electricity bill, his electricity connection is cut off. The consumer cannot get his electricity restored unless electricity consumer clears the entire outstanding amount. Is PEPCO going to lodge FIR’s against its defaulters, similar to what KESC is doing in Karachi?
