Aggregate Technical and Commercial Losses (ATCL) determines how many hours of load shed will be planned for each zone.
KE has divided Karachi into four zones:
Currently, 60% of Karachi, including low loss residential areas and industrial zones, is exempted from load shed (as of Jan 2015). In 2008-2009, it was 28%. We can’t continue to provide uninterrupted supply in areas where we don’t get paid for the services we provide.
Analysis of the area ATCL is conducted after every three months, whereby depending upon the losses in the area, the load shed duration is applied.
KE has also launched the low-cost meter drive in various areas of Karachi, whereby those consumers currently involved in theft are encouraged to convert to low-cost meters and avoid facing any persecution due to engaging in the illegal activity of theft.
KE regularly conducts kunda removal operations in various areas, regular updates of which are made to the consumers via our communication channels (including social media).
KE has also started the Aerial Bundled Cable project by using insulated wires to deter the use of kunda connections.
KE also conducted various crackdowns against defaulters and power thieves from the ‘Name and Shame’ campaign in 2011-2012 to Operation Burq in 2015-2016.
Community support is vital to reduce theft in an area. While KE has taken various initiatives to control theft, only in areas where the community has joined KE’s efforts has there been a sustainable solution for reducing theft. This in turn benefits the residents of the locality in the form of reduction in load shed and faults.
We’ve set up a dedicated channel whereby consumers can report theft anonymously by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

- A new slab of 100 – 200 units has been introduced
Bill calculation example:
- Monthly units consumed = 275
- Identify the slab range. 275 lies between 201-300 hence slab 3 will be applied (applicable tariff)
- The last 75 units lie in the 201-300 units slab, hence they will be charged on the applicable tariff i.e Rs 10.20/unit
- Calculation : (75*10.20)+(200*8.11)
