KESC to provide free electricity to affected families for six months

The Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) has expressed its deepest sorrow over the deaths of the workers killed in the Baldia Town factory fire, and announced waiver of all existing and outstanding electricity dues in addition to the supply of free electricity to the affected families for six months.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, the KESC offered its condolences and deepest sympathies with the families of the victims, most of whom were the breadwinners of their families.

The power utility said that the waiver was being made under its Corporate Society Responsibility (CSR) programme to express its solidarity with the aggrieved families and to provide whatever solace it could.

“Since the KESC plays an important role in the lives of city-dwellers, we consider it our social responsibility to offer our support and stand by our consumers during trying times,” the statement said.

The KESC also offered to coordinate with the civic and humanitarian agencies working at the scene of the catastrophe to identify the victims and their families.
