‘No outages from Iftar to Sehr’

‘No outages from Iftar to Sehr’
May 18, 2018

PESHAWAR: The federal government has asked the power distribution companies (Discos) not to carryout power outages from Iftar to Sehr time.

During the remaining hours of day-time, the distribution companies have been allowed to adjust their load management plan accordingly. Now there will be two load management plans for 10 hours (from Iftar to Sehr) and then for 14 hours (the fasting time).

The move has been apparently taken to facilitate the people in carrying out religious obligations of Iftar, Sehr and Taraveeh and take some rest as well. The load-shedding duration during day-time on all feeders may increase with end to outages during night-time.

The loss-making feeders will face more outages, while the feeders with less losses will face short outages.

In another step to give relief to power consumers during Ramazan, the government has decided that industries will not be provided electricity during night-time. The government says the step has been taken after understanding with industrial sector.
