Pesco resorts to loadshedding to recover dues

CHITRAL: The Peshawar Electric Supply Company (Pesco) is using a bizarre method to recover the dues from consumers in Chitral by suspending the supply to them for four hours a day.

An official of Power Distribution Centre (PDC) in the Pesco headquarters told Dawn that the step had been ordered by the company high-ups as there was a large amount outstanding against the consumers in Chitral.

The official, however, could not explain the rationale behind suspending power supply to realise the outstanding dues and the mechanism of its working, and only said the order was from the high-ups.
