Govt plans further dismantling of Discos

The government has decided to further dismantle the ex-Wapda distribution network into smaller distribution units that would increase the number of distribution companies (Discos) to 15 from existing 10.

On Thursday, Federal Minister for Power Sardar Awais Ahmed Khan Leghari ordered the managements of the three Discos in Multan, Lahore and Peshawar to immediately take up the proposals for bifurcation of these distribution companies with their board of directors (BOD).
