ISLAMABAD: Ministry for Water and Power has decided to distribute 30 million energy savers under Prime Minister (PM) program amongst the consumers to control the energy crises.

Details said, ministry will provide a receipt along with utility the bill and consumer who will purchase one energy saver will surrender two 100 volts bulbs to WAPDA.

Sources from Ministry told that, the program of distributing 30 million energy savers amongst consumers was initiated during the era of former military dictator Pervez Musharraf, however at that time government had planned to distribute them free of cost.

But, present government has imposed the term that energy saver should be given to consumer who surrenders 2 bulbs. No special procedure has been introduced for the distribution of energy savers and collection of bills.

This uncertainty of procedure has raised the finger on the transparency of the project, while no one knows from where the funds for advertising of this project will be arranged.

Distribution companies have already sent the bills to customers but no further directions by government has been given to companies regarding this project.
