Bahria Town Lahore decreases its electricity rates

I am amazed to inform you that Bahria Town Lahore has decreased its electricity rates for its residents. On the other hand their power supply is now fully uninterrupted and there is no concept of load shedding or power outage in Bahria Town Lahore.

In the start (2005-2006) Bahria Town Lahore started charging flat rate of Rs.7 per unit and then increased the rates to Rs.9 per unit and provided generator back up during load shedding hours. The quality of power through generators was not satisfactory as tripping was very common. Now Bahria Town Lahore has its own dedicated grid station which provides electricity without any problem.
During our latest meeting we requested Malik Riaz Hussain Sahib for decreasing electricity per unit charges and school fees. He agreed to discuss the matter with his team. It was decided that school fee can not be decreased without effecting the standard. However electricity rates has been revised as follows:

Rs.1.40 upto 50 Units
Rs.3.20 51-100 Units
Rs.4.96 101-300 Units
Rs.8.03 301-700 Units
Rs.10 Above 700 Units

We were supposed to pay Rs.4500/= for September 2009 but we have been charged Rs.3393/= including Govt. Taxes.

I appreciate Bahria Town Lahore for taking this generous step only for the betterment of its members.
