AT-KABUL: Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) warned to take legal action against those who didn’t pay their electricity bills in 10 days.
The marketing chief of the power supply company, Mirwais Alemi, told reporters on Tuesday that government institutions and some individuals owe Afs4 billion to the DABS.
“If the defaulters didn’t pay their electricity bills within 10 days, we will take cameras and knock their doors to identify who they are and will also cut their electricity lines,” Alemi warned.
He said they have sent several notices to defaulters, including government institutions and individuals, to pay their bills, but they are yet to take the issue seriously. He added that the issue has faced the company with financial challenges.
“The government institutions which haven’t paid their electricity bills include, Ministry of Public Health, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Higher Education, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Information and Culture, Ministry of Telecommunication and Information Technology, Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation, Ministry of Borders and Tribal Affairs and dozens of other organizations,” Alemi said. However, he didn’t revealed names of the private defaulters.
The Attorney General Office (AGO) has said that they have received the list of the defaulters and will soon take legal action against them.
