Strangely, Bahria Town was NOT affected significantly.
I fully agree with you but it was not the case today. I think that Bahria Town is now not totally dependent upon National Grid.

@SI & Hussain Kaisrani
whats approx monthly electricity bill in Bahria?
Hussain Kaisrani replied on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 08:48 PM PST
The bill (unit rate) is almost the same as of LESCO/IESCO (WAPDA). As there is no power outage so use increases and monthly bill totally depends upon the use of electricity.
In winter my monthly bill remains under Rs.2,000/=. We are a family of 4 permanent members and parents/guests also keep visiting us very often. We try to use every thing including electricity with responsibility.

Thank you for providing the information but the matter is being discussed in some other context.
It is strange when some housing project spends huge money for the comfort of its residents. It is not common in our society. Though in the long run all the advantage goes to the project but no one thinks or invests for long term benefits.
Many friends here use to curse Bahria Town or Malik Riaz Hussain Sahib that he takes advantages of his position, money and relations to get benefit from WAPDA. They also think that it is not fair that residents of Bahria Town are enjoying full time electricity and all other country is suffering from load shedding. Due to this blackout yesterday, I got it confirmed that Bahria Town has its private power generation system which is enough for Bahria Town Lahore residents.
SI also confirmed that Bahria Town Rawalpindi / Islamabad also had no problem of electricity in recent power outage.
Thank you Bahria Town for making this place not only liveable but enjoyable

Kaisrani sahab has logically explained why we should have trust in BT's private power generation ability. This is how we should conduct discussion in this forum not in the manner exhibited by Mr Saleem Akhtar. I hope LRE will take notice of his language and delete such posts. By the way there are a lot of people in this country who do resist bribes.
Bahria Town should be respected for its good work. My only problem with them is that they often create too much hype in their ads which can sometimes be misleading and later embarrassing for them. I hope they will improve their organizational culture in this regard.
