KARACHI The business community has decided to stop payment of bills to the KESC due to 12 hours loadshedding in industrial zones of the city. On the other hand, the KESC has warned to cut the electricity supply over non-payment of bills. So far, both Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) and Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) are not ready to change their opinions and businessmen are ready to stop payment of their utility bills, while KESC is warning that it will cut the supply of those industrial concerns that will not pay their bills on time. KCCI President Mian Abrar Ahmad expressed deep concern over colossal production losses of billions of rupees a day due to KESCs 12 hours loadshedding in seven industrial zones. He has advised all the industrial concerns to discontinue payments to KESC and deposit their dues amount in the form of pay-orders in the respective industrial town associations. The KCCI chief stated that it was already unanimously decided in the recent joint press conference and protest at Karachi Press Club that if KESC did not restore continuous electricity supply in all the industrial zones, a joint action will be taken by KCCI and seven industrial town associations and payment of electricity bills would be discontinued. He said that KCCI and its affiliated seven industrial towns associations are united over the issue of loadshedding under the platform of KCCI. After the KCCI statement, spokesman of the KESC announced that KESC will cut down those concerns connections that will not pay their bills on time.
