change of hands, from public to private sector, is expected
in KESC soon. Over 20,000 employees of the KESC are
apparently happy over the promise of the new management to
allow trade union activity from the day the new management
takes over the charge. They are also assured of getting a 20
percent rise to their salaries with a promise of complete
job security. The consumer's interest of keeping tariff at
an affordable level is the responsibility of the government.
Although the privatization of KESC would allow a monopoly
status to the buyer of the KESC, yet it is hoped that an
improved infrastructure would offer quality service with
uninterrupted supply power to the Karachiites.
