KARACHI: K-Electric in a statement has said that it was proud of being a part of the reconstruction phase of Abbas Town, which sadly came under attack last year when a truck exploded outside two apartment blocks.
In order to facilitate the residents, K-Electric has provided relief worth almost Rs 14 million.
It said that KE was eager to play its due role and waived off the dues of Abbas Town residents which stood at almost Rs 9 million. Apart from this KE re-installed its electrical network and system free of cost, which stood at almost Rs 5 million.
The overall reconstruction of KE network included reinstallation of the meters and pole-mounted transformers as well as cable wires.
The step taken by KE to facilitate the reconstruction of Abbas town is a part of KE’s Emergency Response Initiative of its Social Investment Program (SIP), where KE provides relief to those affected by tragedy in the form of exemptions from electricity dues.
Moreover, KE’s commitment to support strategic institutions is the part of working on humanitarian grounds and community development. Under this program, KE also offers subsidized electricity to welfare organizations in recognition of the noble causes pursued by them.
