GHAZNI (SW) – Authorities in Ghazni have set out a stern warning against electricity bill defaulters.

The spokesman of the governor of Ghazni, Hafiz Umar Ghaznavi, told Salam Watandar that the residents and government agencies of the province owe 62 million afghanis to the electricity company.

He says that in this group, 32 million government agencies and the rest are commercial companies and people. According to him, now he has started the series of electricity debt collection and cutting electricity lines in Ghazni.

The spokesman of the governor of Ghazni warns that if any government agency, commercial company or residential house does not pay their debts, they will cut their electricity lines.

Muhammad Farooq Puya, local analyst, says that the government should implement some kind of law on all the people of the society and it is also useful for the people to pay their electricity bills on time.

He also welcomes the government’s legal action against electricity bill defaulters and disconnection of their electricity supply.

The electricity company’s non-payment of electricity bills on time and years of non-payment of debts are the problems that have caused the electricity company to face problems. According to reports, the company still owes Uzbekistan and Tajikistan millions of afghanis.
