PESHAWAR, Sep 02 (APP): Peshawar High Court (PHC) has stopped Peshawar Electricity Supply Company (PESCO) from charging, collecting, and imposing Fuel Price Adjustments on electricity bills from the provincial consumers.
A writ petition filed by Advocates Shahid Qayum and Said Roman Shah contended that FPA was illegally being collected from petitioners, coupled with consumers of KP against the rules and regulations.
They said that the power being consumed by the consumers of KP was hydroelectric generation and in this regard, the province was self-sufficient, whereas the surplus power was shared with other provinces.
They said that the collection of FPA was subject to the generation of power through other sources.
Senior Puisne Judge Justice Rohul Amin providing interim relief to PESCO consumers suspended collection, imposition, and charging of FPA in electricity bills to the extent of consumers of KP, adding that in change circumstances, the law shall follow its own course.
