Some residents of Kabul criticized the increase in electricity bills in the last month.
They said that in the last month, every 24 hours people have electricity for only two hours, but their electricity bills have increased in comparison with other months.
“We have electricity for one hour, we can't even charge our phones, we don’t have power in this harsh winter, this problem covers the country, especially Kabul,” said Roya, a Kabul resident.
“In the past month, we had electricity for two hours at night, we were just filling the water tank but now the electricity bill comes to 3500,” said Mansoor, a Kabul resident.
Meanwhile, the former head of Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat said that the reason for the increasing electricity bill is the people's high use of electric energy and the estimation of the bill by the employees of Breshna company.
“There was a violation by previous Breshna Sherkat employees; unfortunately, it’s still happening now, in winter the highways are not good, and employees can’t go everywhere and make bill estimates,” said Amanullah Ghalib, former head of DABS.
Meanwhile, Breshna Sherkat rejects the extra charge from electricity consumers.
“We call on people if they have any doubt about their electricity bills to take a picture from their meter and compare it with their electricity bills, if there are any problems share them with us,” said Hekmatullah Akhundzada, Head of DABS.
Afghanistan buys a large part of its electricity needs from Central Asian countries and Iran, and the recent electricity shortage in Kabul and some provinces of the country has aroused the criticism of the citizens of the country,
