Daily load shedding to begin in Bahria Town over Rs 600m unpaid dues

Bahria Town load shedding

Due to unpaid bills, the Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) has imposed substantial load shedding for Bahria Town Rawalpindi.

The housing society’s electricity supply would be temporarily disconnected by IESCO due to non-payment of bills totaling millions of rupees, according to a notification issued on Tuesday, June 29.

Furthermore, starting on June 30, Bahria Town will have a four-hour power out every day, which will be extended to six hours because the town’s management owes IESCO Rs 608 million in outstanding bills.

The statement stated that all legalities in this regard had been completed, and that load shedding would begin on Wednesday, June 30th, at Grid Stations Bahria Town Phase-IV and Phase-VII. 

Previously, load shedding in the area occurred between the hours of 15:00-17:00 and 20:00-22:00. However, starting today, the power outage will occur between 10:00 and 12:00 a.m., 15:00 and 17:00 a.m., and 20:00 and 22:00 a.m.
