Government of PakistanPower situation to improve from Sunday: Khurram Dastgir

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for Power Engineer Khurram Dastgir Khan has said that the power situation in the Country will improve from Sunday as a result of improved availability of RLNG and furnace oil to the power plants.

While addressing a news conference along with the Minister of State Hashim Notezai in Islamabad on Friday, he pointed out that the Country is currently facing load shedding due to a shortage of fuel and closure of certain power plants owing to maintenance and technical faults.


The minister said that steps have been taken at the power distribution companies to ensure that the situation does not deteriorate further during the days of Eid ul Fitr. He said that the Discos have been asked to ensure the availability of extra transformers to meet with any situation.

Khurram Dastgir said that we are also watching the revenue targets of Discos and request will also be made to the law enforcement agencies to check power pilferage.

The federal minister said that there has arisen an additional demand of 2,000 to 3,000 megawatt electricity during the last few days which increased the demand and supply gap. He said that the problem in Pakistan is not of electricity generation but of the availability of fuel.

The minister said that the availability of gas will start from Sunday while of coal will begin the next week which will help overcome the shortage of electricity.
