Lesco suspend Bahria Town electricity for failing to clear over Rs600m dues

The Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco) has decided to keep the electricity of Bahria Town suspended for six hours daily as the housing society has failed to clear Rs608 million dues in respect of electricity bills.

On the other hand, prolonged and unannounced loadshedding in Rawalpindi has made the life of the residents miserable amid the scorching heat.

With regard to suspension of electricity to Bahria Town, an Iesco statement said the timing of the load management on Tuesday (June 29) was from 3pm to 5pm and then from 8pm to 10pm.

From June 30 onwards, there will be six hours’ load management in three intervals — from 10am to noon, 3pm to 5pm and 8pm to 10pm.
