Musharraf clears outstanding electricity bills.
Islamabad, Aug. 28 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has cleared all the outstanding electricity dues of his Chak Shahzad farm house.
Pakistan National Assembly Standing Committee on Water and Power was informed here on Thursday that Musharraf paid 480, 910 rupees to clear the fine imposed by the Islamabad Electric Power Company (IESCO).
"The tarrif structure at General (r) Musharraf's house has also been changed from D-2 to A-1, and the difference amount has been recovered," The Dawn quoted Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) MD Tahir Basharat Cheema, as saying.
In July, the PEPCO had disconnected the power supply to Musharraf farm house, after he failed to pay outstanding bills.
Musharraf was given an electric connection for his farmhouse on agricultural rates, which are much lower than the domestic tariff. He, however, regularized the connection after much media interference.
However, owners of 11 other farmhouses are yet to clear over a two million rupee bill to the utility company. (ANI)
