    Uzbekistan reduces electricity supply to Kabul: DABS

    November 21, 2022 - Pajhwok Afghan News


      KABUL (Pajhwok): Da Afghanistan Bareshna Shirkat or power utility says Uzbekistan has reduced electricity supply to Kabul from 430 to 200 MW due to technical problems.

      DABS operations director, Safiullah Ahmadzai, told a press conference here that they had been informed a few days ago that the imported electricity would be reduced for three days due to technical problems.

      He said the problem remained unresolved and the level of imported electricity from Uzbekistan had decreased from 430 MW to 200 MW.

      He said talks were ongoing with Uzbek authorities and they were trying to solve the problem this week. Before the decrease in power supply from Uzbekistan, 430 megawatts of electricity was connected to Kabul, but now this level has decreased to 340 megawatts.

      Ahmadzai said 90 megawatts of electricity from Turkmenistan has been connected to Kabul due to the decrease in imported electricity from Uzbekistan.

      He added Afghanistan needed 1,200 megawatts of electricity and the current level stood at only 850 megawatts including from domestic sources.

      DABS spokesperson Hamkatullah Maiwandi said government departments and other defaulting enterprises paid more than 554 million afghanis to DABS in the last two months.

      “A total of one billion and 129 million afghanis have been submitted to the account of DABS through the Ministry of Finance so far since the issuance of the order of the Prime Minister.”

      He said 45. 5 million afghanis have been received from 545 defaulting politicians and powerful people. Maiwandi also said 747.5 acres seized land belonging to DABS has been reclaimed in Nangarhar, Sarobi district of Kabul and in Baghlan province.
