Facts For Choosing Us
Funds & Finance:
The proceeds from the sale of plots allotted to industries on 99-year leases in Industrial Estates and the annual ground rent collected from them are a major source of income for the Authority.
Expenditure on development schemes approved by the Board of Directors, LIEDA for these industrial estates, operation and maintenance of existing schemes, and other revenue expenditures are met from this income.
As KESC supplies the bulk load of electricity distributed to various feeders laid and energized in these industries estates to the authority while the provision of electricity connection to the industries, laying and maintenance of internal distribution network is the responsibility of the authority. Technical staff responsibilities are satisfied, therefore, KESC’s bulk electric load bills are paid by the Authority through its billing system after receipt from individual industrial consumers.
The revenue generated from the water supply is used to pay the cost of raw water to the Balochistan Irrigation Department and to operate, repair, and maintain the systems established in these industrial estates to ensure uninterrupted supply throughout the year.
We know that security is one of the biggest concerns investors face. For this, we have effectively used the police and the FC in the last few years to control land grabbing and other crimes to allay the fears of the business community.
