ISLAMABAD - The power transformers installed at the Environment Directorate of the Capital Development Authority Directorate has been out of order for more than a week. Sources privy to the matter told Pakistan Today that the problem had caused great inconvenience for the staff.
The sources seeking said the transformer had broken down days before the start of the Eid holidays suspending power supply to the directorate.
He said around four months ago the authority had bought a new power transformer with Rs 0.25 million from the IESCO but during the recent rainy season, it developed some fault and since then the directorate had been without electricity. He said the IESCO had said they would give another power transformer once the latter paid them.
The sources said the high-ups were reluctant to come to office because of power suspension and that on Monday most of the officers left for their homes early. He said the work at the director had come to stand still because of this problem.
