Ref H-6140-2008-MMA-957 registered with Wafaqi Mobtasib Karachi

Sub un-attended & careless from KESC against complain more than 2/3 excess billing reason speedy/faulty meter but who will notice KESC silence?

Respected Sir / Madam

We are living in a 2 room flat of ZAINABIA TRUST, SOLDIER BAZAR, KARACHI 74400 and our problem begins when replaced old meter by new one, Since we faced problem of excess billing even our complain registered with the WAFAQI MOHTASIB, Karachi No. H-6140-2008-MMA-957 have no progress when time to time we remind them to solve our problem, why they people treat us SECOND CITIZEN OF PAKISTAN.

Our case was 20 months old but remain dead in the file of WAFAQI MOBTASIB any person asked why they delayed the cases for what reason?

Why we punished to face the excess billing more than 2/3 time against the actual consumption more interesting to share we replace all our normal light and bulb with saver in order to safe the electricity charges but our efforts are unsuccessful..

More interested to share I also registered complain with the following authority and expect positive justice and solution of my proof but don’t take un-necessary time please.


PRB-5378-09. On line complain with Governor of Sindh Dated Feb 2, 2009

ONL/0000035/09 with Mohtasib Islamabad Dated Feb 3, 2009

Many time placed complain with KESC but surprise they people have no courage to reply

Approach KCCI for help twice time but no positive result to solve problem, only submit electricity bill photo copies to them

today registered online complain with Chief Minister of Sind and expect positive response.

Please remove our faulty / speedy meter at your earliest and also allow us reasonable rebate the reason we pay the excess ELECTRICITY billing on account of speedy or faulty meter, this credit must reflect in our bills and inform what amount you suggest for giving us credit soon.

Current month bill I can’t able to pay due to heavy amount of Rs.2200 and even request to solved by problem in honest and sincere way than god will bless you all.

Do not forget the issue of unannounced load shedding which on daily basis we used to face at least 3 to 5 times a single day and duration of entire single day is minimum 4 hours.

I am jobless Since Sep – 08 and plus KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION PATIENT, why you people want to give additional tension and torture as punishment for using electricity in honest way?

I failed to understand when we settle our Nov 08 bill in due date than why the arrears shown in Dec 08 bill for Rs.610.07 which is too surprising.

Remember that delay in justice is also IN-JUSTICE and please don’t give additional burden or pressure for common consumers. Where KESC totally careless attitude to solve my problem than what authority I should contact tell me please.

How helpless or powerless business community KCCI organization not yet succeeded to get relief a common consumers than how they fought for the rights of own members.

In last who will remind to KESC that they forgot to response a common consumers? KESC maintain the same attitude (remain silence or ignore) when other consumer complain than who will notice this careless only CONSUMER’S suffer in our country.

Thanking You

thats a very sad story, and this problem of incorrect meter reading by kesc has happened with almost everyone.

I definately agree and my sympathies are with you, cause I myself have received incorrect bills and they are making me run from pillar to post. But in the end mere bhai yahan jungle ka rule hay kuch bhe nahe hone wala.

With due respect I want to bring your kind attention toward that for the last three months our electricity Bill is not being charged according to meter reading. We have written so many applications to K.E.S.C (zone landhi # 3) but they didn’t response to our request yet. Our consumption is under the 100 units and we received fixed 150 units bill every month Please send us a bill according to meter reading.
So kindly instruct the concern zone act upon our request.

We shall be thankful of you.

A/c No: 0411625520029 & Consumer No: AL 560050
Subject: Correction in the Bill for the Month of Aug. 2009

Dear Sirs,

This is to bring in your kind knowledge that the bill for abovementioned account and consumer number has been issued on the basis of wrong meter reading since the shop which belongs the above consumer number is remain closed with effect from May 2009 and the meter is static on the reading of 9234 whereas the bill of August 2009 showing the reading of 9734 thus 500 unit have been added in the previous reading. I believe that this is an inadvertent mistake of figure 7 instead of 2 by a concerned meter reader which I request you to please rectify and issue me a correct reading bill.

Thanking you and hoping your favorable action as soon as possible.

Sincerely yours,

2. At the time of taken of kunda, the got assessment of bill with out A.C/split. The KESC fixed their bills on that basses. Now they are using A.C/split and paying fewer bills to KESC.
3. The people who are using un-official kunda they are also using A.C/split. They are not paying single piney to KESC with the setting of official of KESC.
4. The KESC installed 250kv of PMT opposite Jinnah coaching center which is less than required load.

Problem arising due to official and un- official Kunda

1. Fluctuation of voltage.
2. Tripping from PMT.
3. Broken of jumper and wires by heating.
4. The home appliances have been depraved I.e TV, energy savor, eating material and etc.


Action required from KESC

1. To remove the official and un- official Kunda.
2. To issue notices for installation of meters.
3. To install new PMT according to load.

We hope that you will take quick action on our request.

Thanking you,

Residents of Saadabad

During a phase when the govt. is confronting a worst eoncomic crisis, white elephants like KESC, railways and WAPDA are certainly likely to come under axe. To deal with inefficiencies, the overstaffed departments constitute the most vulnerable area. The challenge for the govt. is how to absorb the workforce in other sectors when there is no eoncomic activity and unemployment is sky high. Poor initiative and bad timing I'd say!

One of the big reasons of electricity crises is theft of electricity. This problem faced all over the Pakistan but especially Karachi city is highly faced problem of electricity theft. Main Problems are energy crises reason theft Up to us to tell us that the poor actually wanted or you have to face in this problem.
Electricity became the most basic need in our life if electricity is existing.
Them we can live in a country in peaceful manner. If the government could control the theft of electricity and take action for the corrupt people and there is a lot of theft in the area in which I live. this information giving her several times.
Up with the theft of electricity is not wholly Cohn about 2% in a few people
And frankly is being given to the poor. I hope the planet. I live in up with some explanation.
