Secretary Water and Power said that in line with the Prime Minister’s instructions, maximum facilitation has been provided to public during Ramadan by ensuring smooth and uninterrupted supply of electricity at the time of Sehar and Iftar.

A proper mechanism has been in place to address complaints of any breakdown. He said despite severe heat wave experienced in early May and the resultant increased power usage, load management has been carried out with due care.
