I recently visited Bahria Town, Lahore and was happy to know that there is no load shedding there which is a big relief for the residents and visitors. I am interested to know whether Bahria Town has set up it's own power generating plant or it is buying electricity from one of Independent Power Plants set up in our country. I believe other big Residential Socities like DHA will follow Bahria Town example in future if load shedding continues in the country.

That is because bahria bribe and steal which dha does not. More over you can give stollen electricity to few hundred houses but dha has tens or thousands of houses.

Visitor,it can't be true and is unbelievable what you wrote about Bahria stealing electricity. I think Bahria has either set up it's own power generating plant or it is buying electricity from one or more of IPPs and this possibilities should be looked into by DHA and other big Residential Societies to save residents from load shedding which getting worst ever year.

Bahria Town is not stealing the electricity and has its own arrangement to produce electricity.

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.
I appreciate Bahria Town Lahore for managing the quality life for its members.

dha can also do this for its resident but its difficult. in bahria situation it is not that difficult as population is very low in bahria. defence is a city in a city

hamari piari qaum bohat hi bholi hai. the generators are just show pieces & cannot take the load of full bt. the grid is hooked to same system as other public system. but due to bribe to proper authorities it is always fed with mws needed for bahria.
that is defined as stealing by paying rishwat to the corrupt authorities, politicians & most corrupt media to keep them quite on such issues. the issue came up in some sections of media some time back but after taking their 'fee' they kept quite. they are all fed very well by malik riaz.
hamari bholi quam issi liay sab dunia se peeche hai. someone shud think whether the namaz in the stolen electricity light in bt is halal or haram. it is very funny. just keep quite & hush up.
yeh qaum bohat zarori kaam se so rahi hai.

Even in Rawalpindi all phases of Bahria are load shedding free.

yes it is a fact that BT is bribing the Wapda officials. when concern is raised by other societies and stays are taken then load shedding starts for a few weeks then it gets batter.
