Govt fails to outsource high losses feeders of Discos
ISLAMABAD: The government has failed to outsource high losses feeders of power distribution companies owing to poor response and resistance by the employees, it is learnt.
Sources said that past experience of outsourcing high loss feeders of power distribution companies – Multan Electric Power Company, Lahore Electric Power Company, Hyderabad Electric Power Company and Peshawar Electric Power Company – remained unsuccessful for various reasons.
In the case of MEPCO, tender for outsourcing of 17 high losses feeders was floated and tender opening date was extended twice because of non-participation of vender. Despite extension of opening date, nobody approached MEPCO for getting tender documents.
