ISLAMABAD - Federal Minister for Water and Power Naveed Qamar has once again directed the power distribution companies to disconnect electricity of private and public consumers without any discrimination in case the bills are not recovered. Riots in the country due to power crisis have made the government cautious and as per power sector experts suggestions the government is focusing on making recoveries to make payments to Independent Power Producers (IPPs). It is also pertinent to mention here that following the government's orders Islamabad Electric Supply Company had disconnected power supply of Capital Development Authority and Foreign Office that was restored only after taking necessary commitment from the high-ups of both the departments. It is worth mentioning here that the government faced Rs 100 billion short recovery this year that increased circular debt and worsened the power crisis in the country. All this happened due to slack attitude of WAPDA staff thus making the masses suffer. Naveed Qamar said that that the reforms in power sector will improve the efficiency of the power distribution companies, adding that the government has approved a plan in this regard. He said this while presiding over a meeting of the CEOs of power distribution companies held here Friday to review the recovery and other allied matters. Secretary, MD CPPA, JS power and CEOs of all the Discos attended the meeting. Qamar said that the reforms process will supplement the efforts of the government to end the energy crisis and various measures are being taken to enhance the power generation. He dispelled the impression that there will be massive changes in the organizational set-up after implementation of the reforms in the power sector. He said that the government has proposed the reforms for betterment of the public sector power entities and it will improve their efficiency. The reforms will help to reduce the transmission and distribution losses, he said. While reviewing the recovery position, the minister stressed the need for further improvement in the recovery. He also asked them (CEOs of Discos) to take stern action against the power theft. Qamar also asked all the companies to reduce their line losses and bring it to the minimum level. The minister stated that there should be no complaints of inflated bills by the consumers and the officials involved in this should be taken to task. The field staff may be asked to adopt friendly attitude with the consumers, he added.
