KARACHI: Power connections to the water board head office and MD secretariat have been cut off due to overdue bills.
The Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) also disconnected the power supply to residential areas of the water board employees. Officials have disclosed that the water board has to pay bills amounting to Rs9 billion. The department’s electricity bill requires it to pay Rs100 million to the KESC every month but the board has only been paying half of that sum. The power disruption has been condemned by the general secretary of the People’s Labour Union Water Board.
