According to Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE)'s One Year Growth Strategy for Pakistan, energy is a chronic problem that eight governments have not been able to solve. Due to mismanagement and weak governance in the power sector, huge transmission and distribution losses reached Rs. 473 billion during 2021, out of which Rs. 402 billion were recovered through tariff from the electricity consumers and Rs. 71 billion was added to circular debt.
