KARACHI: In continuation of K-Electric’s massive campaign against defaulters and power theft, the power utility has installed over 9600 meters in several parts of Karachi. The power-utility is facilitating residents in applying for new connections and regularising their electricity supply through legal metered connections by fast-tracked processing and simple documentation requirements. Of the total meters installed, over 6500 are low-cost meters with 1,900 such meters installed in Korangi, 1,100 in Gadap and 750 in Orangi. In addition to this, thousands of meters have also been installed for residents of Bin Qasim, Malir, Johar and Baldia.
