SC nullifies LHC’s verdict, electricity surcharges to be received in installments



The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday halted Lahore High Court’s (LHC) decision to stop charging additional surcharge on electricity bills.

The SC ordered the authorities to receive dues in installments.

A three-member bench headed by Justice Saqib Nisar held hearing of the case. The court set aside LHC’s decision and ordered to charge the customers. The court will consolidate and hear all the petitions challenging the LHC’s verdict.

The hearing was adjourned until the second week of February.
