The ECC, which met in Islamabad on Wednesday with Prime Minister's Adviser on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, also approved additional supply of 150 MW of power through National Grid to K-Electric to address power shortage in Karachi.

The Committee approved additional subsidy amounting to 1.8 billion rupees to Tribal Electric Supply Company (TESCO) for the month of Ramazan to provide additional power supply to the seven tribal agencies of ex-FATA. The Power Division informed that the government has been paying the electricity bills of domestic consumers of former tribal agencies through a subsidy of 1.3 billion rupees per month.
