KCCI demands uninterrupted power supply to industrial units

KARACHI: President Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Muffasar Atta Malik has urged the lawmakers in Islamabad and Sindh to take notice of the situation by strictly directing the Utility Service Provider to supply uninterrupted electricity to all industrial units across Karachi.

While expressing deep concerns over the current spell of unannounced load shedding being suffered by all industrial zones of the city, he said that load shedding was being carried out on rotation in all industrial zones of the city for up to five hours during night, resulting in terribly affecting the production of many industrial units, particularly the production of export-oriented industries who have to dispatch their goods abroad within a limited time period. “If the situation goes on like this, the exporters may not be able to dispatch their consignments on time, which would not only cause severe losses to them and to the national exchequer but would also result in losing the valuable foreign buyers”, he added.
