K-E, HESCO directed to submit affidavits to Supreme Court

KARACHI: The Supreme Court (SC) gave a week on Thursday to K-Electric (K-E) and the Hyderabad Electric Supply Company (Hesco) to submit affidavits on the duration and schedule of load-shedding.

The K-E chief distribution officer informed the apex court that efforts were being made to increase power generation. A counsel for K-Electric argued that load-shedding was being carried out because against the demand of 3,500 megawatts (MW), the power utility was producing only 2,950 MW.
