    Pakistan Achieves 85% Conservation Rates!

    This just in: “85% of Pakistanis conserve electric power 24/7.”

    They have either one bulb hanging from a wire or none!

    Now, the question is what have the 1% who consume the most, steal the most and complain the loudest done?

    It is the media, the consultants and the self-appointed experts who do not know how to frame the question for the good of the people.

    Folks, there is a Pakistan outside “I-Slammed-Everyone-Else-Abad” and seven other major cities you are not in touch with it.

    Except for writing analysis and collecting monies for it.

    Zamanov: Take a look at

    From today’s Dawn:

    ISLAMABAD, June 13: The countrywide electricity shortage is learnt to have increased to about 2,900MW owing mainly to continued closure of about 25 generating units across the country, adding to the misery of consumers in the sizzling temperatures.

    “This is the worst energy crisis in Pakistan’s history. Accounting for almost 20 per cent of the requirement, the gap between demand and supply is even higher than the 10 per cent shortfall faced in the early 1990s,â€

    No one seems to see a couple of very important aspects of all this. According to a report , the biggest defaulters of WAPDA are the govt organizations and army tops the list. these defaults amounts sum upto high billions , not a small figure by any means.

    So basically this is what i understand , govt utilizes the electricity , doesnt pay the bill but still gets un-interrupted electric supply while the average joe PAYs the high bills and still lives in the dark???

    Secondly the line loss ratio on power lines stands quite close to 50% in pakistan , where as the highest acceptable line loss in the world is 25% , which means for every 100MW we produce only 50MW is actually put to use? Whose fault is it really? . mine , urs , i dont think so? . We are paying our bills on time , so why should we suffer.

    There is something really messed up here , isnt it?
