Islamabad- Electricity shortfall across Pakistan has reached 3400 MW, as temperature has started to rise in most parts of the country. According to National Transmission and Despatch Company Limited (NTDCL) sources, power supply in the country is 9600 MW against the demand of 13000 MW.

Gap between power supply and demand is widening day by day, due to which the duration of power cuts in urban areas has reached six hours, while rural areas are suffering from eight hours of loadshedding.

Moreover, the process of unannounced and prolonged loadshedding besides the announced power cut from LESCO, is creating severe problems for the citizens.
