Karachi residents are seeing increased loadshedding.

Karachi is once again experiencing unannounced power disruptions during hot weather, as the city’s main power provider has failed to meet the city’s electrical consumption needs.

Unannounced loadshedding has resumed in the port city, according to K-Electric. Different parts of the city, notably the Federal B. Area, are experiencing unexpected loadshedding for six hours.

Several localities, including those free from loadshedding, are experiencing power outages, including North Karachi, Liaquatabad, North Nazimabad, Nazimabad, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Korangi, and Clifton.

When contacted, the power utility restated its oft-stated position, claiming that it had not increased the duration of power outages in the city and that no changes had been made to the loadshedding timetable.

The KE said earlier this week that the first unit of K-Bin Electric’s Qasim Power Station 3 (BQPS-III) is now offline due to a problem discovered during a test. It did, however, state that no extra loadshedding will take place. According to K-Electric, “currently, the city’s power supply is as per the normal schedule released on June 30th 2022 and available on the KE website.”

The present government, led by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, has previously promised to address the issue of electricity shortages. Last month, Prime Minister Shehbaz stated that the federal government was making every effort to restart delayed power facilities in order to end the country’s massive energy crisis.
