Jamat Islami takes KE to court over electricity loadsheding in Karachi


Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has filed a petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) against K-Electric (KE) for excessive load-shedding in Karachi.

As per details, the petition named the Ministry of Energy, NEPRA, and KE as respondents and requested the court to direct KE to provide uninterrupted electricity supply, especially during the heatwave.

The petition claims that KE’s schedule is incorrect and that 71% of feeders are exempt from load-shedding.

The petition also states that NEPRA has imposed a fine of Rs 50 million on KE for poor performance. The JI has demanded that KE be held responsible for technical faults and that they be rectified.

According to the petition, Karachi faces an average of 16 hours of load shedding daily, with temperatures soaring above 40°C.
