“….600MW thermal power project at Jamshoro.
“History will not excuse us if we do not take correct decision in time” said Raja while announcing these decisions. “Today we have laid the foundation of an energy policy which is based on our indigenous resources and will lead to savings of huge foreign exchange which are presently being spent…”
Look at FULL MARKET Price LAW ENFORCED disconnections if poor do not pay bill on time. No BADMASHI no CABZA group to steal electricity ::
One state of Australia with only 5,000,000 population got all its ELECTRICITY needs planned in 1980’s.
In the 1980s work on a third open cut commenced at Loy Yang, as the Yallourn and Morwell coal fields were both committed to fuel existing power stations. The plan was for two new stations (Loy Yang A and B) consisting all a total of eight 500 MW units, all fed by the common coal mine. The project was hit by cost overruns, with an independent review initiated by the government in late 1982, finding excessive rates of pay for construction and operation staff, poor project management, over investment in both the coal mine and power station and general overmanning.
Electricity costs to consumers also begun to rise in the 1980s, due to the need to pay greater dividends to the Victorian Government and to service greater debt levels from the heavy expansion. The SECV was also a part to the Portland Smelter Contract, which provided the Alcoa aluminium smelter with favourable electricity prices at the expense of other consumers.…”
SHAME on ZIA UL HAQ the GREAT honest GENERAL you with your ARMY could not get ELECTRICITY DEPARTMENT to run properly ! No department other that ISI worked correctly ? So Pakistan hit 1990’s with “only” river water electricity.
IF PAKISTANI ARMY collected TAXES and ELECTRICITY and STAMP DUTIES properly today PAKISTAN will be like AUSTRALIA. At least half as rich. Like China = TRY to STEAL electricity in China ? = JAIL. Never jail in Pakistan.
