According to spokesperson NEPRA, K-Electric has repeatedly failed to produce adequate electricity and has been found violating the terms and conditions of its contract.

The NEPRA spokesperson said that K-Electric willfully produced less electricity than required and tried to mislead NEPRA by keeping the regulatory authority in the dark adding that K-Electric did not take any precautionary measures to deal with the shortage as well.

K-Electric is bound to reply to NEPRA in 15 days according to section 28 and 29 of NEPRA Act.
