Pak textile industry may be exempted from load-shedding

The Pakistan’s textile industry is likely to be exempted from load shedding, the textile industry was vying for resumption of load shedding by the end of the holy month of Ramadan but no decision was made by PEPCO the authority despite availability of surplus power.

Surplus power was available but the secretary water and power had left for Karachi well before Eid, therefore the decision to resume power supply to the textile industry was deferred till his return, the sources added. It may be noted that the Ministry of Water and Power had withdrawn exemption from load shedding to the textile industry with the start of the holy month of Ramazan. The textile industry was exposed to 10 hours a day load shedding, starting half an hour before Iftar and resuming half an hour after Sehri.

The relevant quarters had well-informed the authority that surplus power would be available during the Eid holidays due to reduced power consumption both by the domestic and commercial consumers. But the authority kept delaying the decision, apprehending any untoward situation in case the domestic consumers face in any trouble due to power supply to the industrial sector.
