National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has decided to form a committee to investigate the massive power breakdown that plunged most of the country into darkness in early hours of Sunday.

As per details, the committee will include prominent engineers from the regulator as well as private sector. The committee will investigate the reasons behind the breakdown.

On the other hand, National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC) on Sunday also announced to form a committee for inquiry into massive power breakdown.

According to a notification, the committee would probe into the reasons and facts leading to collapse of power system and would fix responsibility of negligence on the officers.

The committee would also suggest measures to prevent re-occurrence of such incidents in future.

“The committee is required to give its report within comprehensive findings, recommendations and way forward within 07 days,” it added

The electricity distribution system in the nation of more than 210 million people is a complex — and delicate — web, and a problem in one section of the grid can lead to cascading breakdowns countrywide.
