K-Electric drops Rs 2.1 billion ‘bomb’ on a citizen
One such citizen of Karachi’s Federal B. Area braved the same situation when the K-Electric sent him Rs 2.1 billion bill.
Bill initially issued by the K-Electric
The highly-inflated bill stirred up a debate on the social that how a power utility could make such a terrible blunder.
The Twitter-savvy K-Electric wasted no time to issue clarification on the matter.
Corrected copy of the bill
Responding to some of the Twitteratis who were making power utility a subject of derision on social media, the K-Electric in its terse reply said the corrected amount had been sent to the consumer.
