ISLAMABAD (APP) - Federal Minister for Interior Mohsin Naqvi on Tuesday ordered to speed up crackdown to stop overbilling and electricity thieves.

He was chairing a meeting at FIA Lahore Zonal Office.

He ordered an indiscriminate action should be continued against the officers who burden the citizens through over billing. "Zero tolerance policy on over billing will continue," he said, adding that it is absolutely unacceptable to punish citizens for the incompetence and negligence of DISCOs.

He said that it is a priority to give relief to electricity consumers in overbilling. He also ordered an action be taken against government personnel involved in electricity theft.

Mohsin Naqvi reviewed the progress on the instructions given during the last visit. Director FIA Lahore Sarfraz Vark gave the briefing. DG FIA Ishaq Jahangir attended the meeting through video link.
