PEPCO directs CEOs DISCOs to install All Pending Electricity Connections without Delay

Lahore, January 01, 2018 (PPI-OT):Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) has directed all Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of Distribution Companies (DISCOs) for installation of sanctioned and all pending new electricity connections specifically industrial and commercial without unnecessary delay.

The directions were issued by Managing Director PEPCO to CEOs consequent upon the review meeting held in the last month. In his letter addressed to Chief Executive Officers, He had instructed that early installation of connections will avoid hassle to consumers and will save the opportunity cost due to loss of revenue to public exchequer.

MD PEPCO took serious view of the referral of certain cases to Ministry of Energy (Power Division) and PEPCO. He said, that all CEOs have the exclusive competent authority to take decisions without any limit of connection power/load in their respective companies / area of responsibility. He directed to facilitate the consumer at all levels. He also warned the CEOs of DISCOs that if the situation does not improve in subsequent monthly reviews, PEPCO may consider extreme measures like referring the matter for investigation by NAB and FIA.
