ISLAMABAD - Although the Government has claimed that it has exempted the industrial sector from electricity loadshedding, yet it would only benefit those which are already least affected by the situation and small and medium industry, that is originally the backbone of any economy, will continue to suffer. There are only a few industrial zones in the country which are just meant for the installation of manufacturing units and no residential plots are available in those areas. And in those areas huge industries are working, as the small industry owner cannot afford such areas. According to market sources, most of the small and medium industry is located in the residential areas. Why it is so? is another question but the primary question is how the WAPDA would give electricity to such industrial units while turning it off for the houses which are located in the nearby areas. Such as in Faisalabad, Karachi and Lahore, small and medium industry is spread all over the city areas, so the small and medium industry would suffer at any cost. It is pertinent to mention here that many big industries have the resources and infrastructure to generate their own electricity and they are doing that, but there is no option for small business owners except the Government provides them power. However, the Ministry of Water and Power claims it as its great success that it has exempted the industrial zone from loadshedding without giving any comment. The Ministry has also claimed that the electricity shortfall, which was 5,000 megawatts some two weeks back, has now reduced to 4,000 megawatts and it is expected that it would reduce further in the upcoming days. As per a statement issued by the Ministry, there would be considerable improvement in production of hydel electricity in the upcoming days, as water level in Tarbela, Mangla and Chashma Barrage is increasing.
