Chaudhry Muhammad Amin, CEO of Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO), assured the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) delegation on Tuesday of uninterrupted power supply to the textile sector.

Adil Bashir, Chairman of the APTMA, stated that exceptional efforts are being taken to maintain uninterrupted energy supply to the country’s export industry. He gave this guarantee during a meeting with the APTMA team, which included Abdul Rahim Nasir, Amir Sh., Senior Vice Chairman, Kamran Arshad, and Reza Baqir. Mr Bashir stated that an excessive voltage fluctuation (15 percent +/-) is proving deadly for the export-oriented textile sector and that it must be addressed immediately.
APTMA Chairman requested LESCO CEO to ensure an appropriate option for industries whose load expansion applications were denied by LESCO. During scheduled grid repair, he emphasised that CEO LESCO should move the industry load to other grid stations to provide smooth and continuous power delivery to industry. Chairman Adil Bashir stated that there was some misunderstanding over the application period for base units for incremental relief beginning in June 2021.
