Pepco Pakistan , electric company fails to stop power theft

Power theft in Pakistan is very rampant and the authorities like Pepco, Iesco and Pesco have been unable to stop or decrease it significantly due to collusion of their employees with the thieves.
Lately it has been admitted by Pesco on Friday that the every 100 units of electricity supplied by the it to its consumers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 19 units are stolen.
The officials told that power theft was rampant in Peshawar, Charsadda, Bannu, Lakki Marwat, Karak, Tank, Hangu, Battagram and Kohistan districts.They further said Pesco suffered more than half of its line losses in these districts alone.
