Pakistan perks for power stealers

  ISLAMABAD, October 25 (Internews): Pakistan has announced an incentive package for regularisation of power supply to those who steal
 electricity through temporary connections, an official said here
 "Sites where power is being pilfered will be given connections on
 discounted rates," Mirza Hamid, the secretary of the Ministry of Water
 and Power said.
 "A large-scale power theft has been found in Karachi and the Karachi
 Electric Supply Corporation has already started implementing this scheme
 to prevent lengthy court cases and to net new registered users," he
 The official said that the major aim of the scheme was to check power
 theft, which costs state power utility Wapda $20 million a year.
 He said other measures to stop power theft include installation of
 electricity meters outside residences rather than inside and with the
 power transformers.
 Hamid said that Wapda thefts had this year been brought down to 25 per
 cent from 30 per cent, while the loss of the Karachi Electric Supply
 Corporation had been reduced to 32 per cent from 40 per cent. -Internews
