K-Electric has said that load-shedding of up to seven areas will be done in areas where power theft is common.

The company's spokesperson has denied the reports of unannounced load-shedding in the city.

The spokesperson said power is being supplied to Gulistan-e-Jauhar, Orangi Town, Baldia Town, Lyari and Kemari. The spokesperson said that it was inappropriate to compare power outages because of technical faults with load-shedding, adding that registered users are told in advance about the outages.

The spokesperson further said that billing is being done in accordance with the rules and regulations laid down by the regulator. For complaints related to electricity, users can dial 118 or approach K-Electric on social media.
