NA Committee for Negotiations on Tariff Concessions

The National Assembly Standing Committee on Power has directed the Ministry of Energy (Power) to negotiate power tariff concessions with the independent power producers (IPPs), as the Ministry has admitted that the power companies intentionally delayed the electricity billing during the Eid-ul-Adha and Moharram holidays, causing overbilling to electricity consumers of all distribution companies across the country.

The whole world knows that IPPs have cheated a lot,” said the Chairman Committee Chaudhry Salik Hussain during the panel meeting held on Monday. The meeting, held with Chaudhry Salik Hussain in the chair, was attended by Secretary Power Ali Raza Bhutta, Member NEPRA [National Electric Power Regulatory Authority], Sindh, Rafiq Sheikh, the K-Electric and IESCO [Islamabad Electric Supply Company] officials.
