Executive Summary

After having intensive coursework it is prerequisite to have eight week internship in any
organization in order to get practical experience and familiarity with corporate atmosphere.
Being having specialization in Finance I had completed my internship in FESCO (WAPDA).

Faisalabad Electric Supply Company Limited (FESCO) is one of the nine-electricity

distribution companies (DISCOs) established as a result of the unbundling of the vertically
integrated power wing of Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA). It was
organized to take over the properties, assets, obligations and liabilities of former Faisalabad Area
Electricity Board (AEB) of WAPDA. The company was incorporated in March 1998 as a public
limited company under Pakistan Companies Ordinance 1984.

FESCO distributes and supplies electricity to about 2.76 million customers within its service
territory with a population of over 17.2 million under a Distribution License granted by National
Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) pursuant to the Regulation of Generation,
Transmission and Distribution of Electric Power Act, 1997 (NEPRA Act).

The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) was established through a
parliamentary enactment in February, 1958 for integrated and rapid development and
maintenance of water and power resources of the country. The Authority consists of a Chairman
and three members heading Water, Power and Finance Wings. Water Wing of WAPDA is
responsible for planning, designing and execution of water resources development projects in
irrigation, drainage and hydropower sectors. Major surface water projects including large dams
are also operated and maintained by Water Wing. In view of Critical situation of Water Storage
resources, the Federal Cabinet approved various Water and Power projects for construction
under Vision 2025 programme.

Power Wing of WAPDA deals with Hyderal Power generation as well as fourteen corporate
companies comprising four generation companies (GENCOs), one National Transmission and
Dispatch Company (NTDC) and nine Distribution Companies (DISCOs). These companies are
working under the umbrella of Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO).

National demand of electricity has increased and would continue to grow with the development
of economy. Based on the present generation capacity, the hydel-thermal mix in the country is
37:63, which is almost the reverse of an ideal hydel-thermal mix, which should be 70:30 for a
favorable economic development of the country.

The power demand during the last 7 years had grown at an average rate of about 6.31%. The load
forecast prepared by WAPDA in collaboration with Energy Wing, Planning and Development
Division, Government of Pakistan indicated that the power demand would grow at an average
rate of 7.55% per year. To match this projected load, no additional generating capacity could be


FESCO (Faisalabad electric supply company) WAPDA owes a pivotal importance in the region
through its vibrant functions. This is the deep-seated motivator that geared up me to join FESCO
WAPDA for internship. Moreover, the practice and familiarity during this tenure would also
attest helpful and alleviating in the awaiting proficient life. I have believe that this report will
guide and ease the readers to understand the operations of water resources and generations of
electricity in Pakistan and more prominently have good knowledge about FESCO WAPDA, one
of the most important and leading organization


Absolute praise for Almighty Allah, provider of hope, guidance and knowledge without whose
constant remembrance I would not have over come my moments of despair.

I am grateful to Allah almighty, for enabling me to fulfill this tiring, but interesting job for the
completion of my internship report.


I would not be going justice in presenting this internship report without mentioning the people
around me who have been inextricably related with the completion of this report.

I wish to record my honorable regards to all those who helped a lot in completion of this report,
especially to
Manager Audit, Khadim Bloch

insurance amounts to the dependents of Wapda employees who expire during service. During
2000-01 over Rs. 90 million were paid to the families of 758decreased employees.


Basically the FESCO is a subsidiary of Pakistan WAPDA.


WAPDA Means:

Its name simply represent that, it’s the authority which deals with the waters problems in
Pakistan. It’s also deals with the power generation and its distribution in the country.

WAPDA was setup under an ordinance issued in February 1958.this ordinance was subsequently
amended in March 1959. In that amendment the electricity department was transferred to
WAPDA as well.


Pakistan is graciously bestowed with the bounty of water resources. The snow-clad peaks of
mountain ranges, in the north, generate the fortune. The descending snow-melt and monsoon
water flow into the country’s largest Indus River and its tributaries.
Passing through the plateau and the plain, across the Indus valley the rivers embrace the Arabian
Sea, in the south.
Irrigated agriculture being backbone of the country’s economy, this sector is the major use of
water, consumption to continue to dominate the water requirement. About 106 Million Acre Feet
(MAF) out of 157 MAF of surface water is being, annually, diverted to the Indus Basin Irrigation
System. It provides irrigation facilities to 365 Million acres. The country has a large cultivable
land base of 77 million acres. Hence the irrigated land base at present corresponds to 465 per
cent of the total cultivable area. Around 48 MAF is pumped from ground water. Direct rainfall
contributes less than 15 per cent of the water supplied to crops.
All the projects when completed were handed over to the respective provincial irrigation
departments except for Terbela and Chashma dams, Chashma Barrage and Chashma-Jhelum link
canal which remain with WAPDA for operation and maintenance (O&M) purposes.
A total of 1120 instruments were installed in the project to observe the pore water pressures,
settlement of the fill/foundation and lateral displacement.
Pakistan is among the countries of the world where the largest contiguous grid systems are
operative. Connecting the load centers with the power houses, the transmission system dots the
entire country.
It inherited 60 MW power generation capabilities for the population of 31.5 million when it
became independent state on 14th August, 1947. Only two small power stations, one Hydel at
Malakand in NWFP and one thermal near Lahore in Punjab province were in existence within its
geographical boundaries. Bulk of the supply was arranged from India’s Uhl river scheme.
For the first twelve years, the power generation, transmission and distribution systems remained
the domain of the provincial power departments. A few independent companies were, of course,
operating here and there in isolation. Feeling of need, the water and development Authority was
created in the beginning of year 1958 for well planned unified water and power resources of the
country. This was deemed essential in view of water resources and hydro-electric power

potential available in abundance. One of the main objectives of its creation was to set the wheel
of the progress and development goes on independently free of the clutches and constraints of
the bureaucracy set ups. The retail part role of the utility was later on assigned to it through an
amendment in the WAPDA Act in March, 1959.
In transfer from the provinces, it gained 119 MW of hydroelectric and thermal small and medium
power stations. Along with came to it around 7000 kilometers of power disbursement
infrastructure, 300,000 customers.
A little over 500 villages were by then facilitated with the supply at their doorstep. The energy
production quantum at the time was nearly 780 million Kwh and sales were the order of 740
million Kwh. The revenue generation from sale of power was marginally above Rs. 70 million.
This country had entered the phase of progression by that time. A dependable and sound
infrastructure was therefore the requirement of the day. Being life line of the nation, electricity
was the key component. WAPDA rose to the occasion and treaded on the road of development
and progression. The journey goes on and it has by now accomplished numerous hydroelectric
and thermal power generation projects, matching transportation network and distribution system
to cater for the needs of the end consumers. Sustaining the load of the rapidly growing demand
of the electricity of the country always remained the hallmark.
The impact of the professional approach to find the solution to multifarious problems did not
take to show. Within five years of its becoming operational, the electricity generation capability
rose to 636 MW and the energy production shot up to 2,500 million kilowatt hours (MKWh)
from 781 MKWh (units) in 1959. Similarly the number of customers increased from 287
thousands to 688 thousands. Only 609 villages had been provided with the electricity facility by
1959. The number had increased to 1882 in 1965. The rapid progress infused a new life into the
social, industry and agriculture sectors to the good of the country’s economy. Subsequently,
mechanized farming took birth, industrialization picked up and living standard of the common
man improved.
The private sector inducted in the power system of Pakistan in the year 1994 continues to play its
role. Matching transmission lines, up to the capacity of 500 KV dotting the length and providing
the facility of the electricity to about 16.9 million customers in all the socio-economic sectors.
The facility has already been extended at the doorstep of
1, 17,468 villages where majority of the country’s population resides.

Transition to present Scenario

1WAPDA was set-up in 1958 to implement the Indus Basin Treaty as a “Development
2Achieved rapid growth during 2nd Five Year Plan (1960 – 1965) and “Hydro Electric
Capacity” increased from 67MW to 267MW. The “thermal generation capacity”
increased from 39MW to 560MW.
3Process of growth continued during the 3rd and 4th Five Year Plans.
4Oil price increases and political turmoil of 70s disrupted the continuous process of growth
and development.
In the coming five- year plans, the growth in generation capacity could not keep pace with the
increasing demand, due to financial constraints and other issues and by 1988 (6th Five Year Plan
1984-1988), WAPDA was suffering from a huge gap between its generation capability and the
customer demand.

1Organizationally WAPDA had gradually developed into a giant monolithic vertical utility
operated with inherent inefficiencies.
2By mid 1988, acute power shortages led to chronic load shedding and WAPDA initiated
“Demand Suppression” tariffs resulting in a culture of theft and inefficiency.
3In late 80s, the Government launched private power initiatives to establish in phases a
competitive and efficient Electric Power System covering generation, transmission and
4In the 7th five year plan 1989-1993, the Government of Pakistan prepared a strategic
plan, which aimed at:
5Due to change of government in 1993 and shift of priorities in the Plan elements, the
restructuring process was stalled for time being and the full focus of 1994 Energy Policy
shifted to promotion of IPP’s.
6Effect of IPP’s coming on-line from 1997-1998 onwards was financially disastrous for an
already overburdened WAPDA and now beset with numerous problems.

1992 Strategic Plan for Pakistan Power Sector


Establish a competitive electric power system consisting of autonomous, financially viable,

efficiently operated and largely privately owned entities for generation, transmission and
distribution, governed by an independent regulatory authority

Two-pronged strategy

a) Encourage private sector investments in new thermal energy supply


b) Restructuring and partial privatization of the energy utilities

Formation of PEPCO

PEPCO was created in May 1998 as a Management Company, owned by Government

of Pakistan vested with the following corporate objectives

 The corporatization and commercialization of WAPDA’s assets block in

generation, transmission and distribution.
 Overseeing the design and implementation of the Manpower Transition
 Stewardship of early business operations by the newly formed companies.
 Privatization initiatives.

Pakistan Electric Power Company is a Registered Company since May, 1998 under Companies
Ordinance 1984 (owned by Government of Pakistan) and started functioning since 14.04.1999. It
falls under the category of ‘Exempt Entity’ under Nam. It is a Management Company owned by
Government of Pakistan working under the Ministry of Water & Power.

The core operations of the company are

1To act as a managing agent in respect of all business, assets, properties and right of the
Power Wing.

2To carry on, expand, extend, privatize or restructure all businesses, assets, properties.
The company is responsible for restructuring WAPDA Power Functions into 12
(now 14) companies, establishing business relationship amongst them, help them become
administratively and financially self-sufficient, improving their efficiency and preparing them for
privatization. And reporting to Secretary, Ministry of Water and Power (Government of
Pakistan). There is a manual system of recording all the transactions under double entry system
according to companies’ ordinance 1984.

Size of Entity

1Total assets (as on 30-06-2008) = Rs. 8,827,794

2Total liabilities (as on 30-06-2008)= Rs. 1,727,744

3Total revenue (2008-2008) = Rs. 17,837,540

4Total expenditure (2008-2008) Rs. 17,837,540

5Total Budget (2008-2009) = Rs. 27.238 Million

Formation of NEPRA

National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) was created to regulate the
unbundled Power Sector in order to promote competitive power market to ensure reliable
power supply at affordable rates to millions of electricity customers in Pakistan. Major
responsibilities of NEPRA include:

 Issuance of licenses to the power utilities.

 Tariff determinations in a transparent manner.
 Establishment of performance standards for the utilities and their

Plans of the Reform Process

Corporatization of entities is first phase object of PEPCO which is in process and various
Milestones have been achieved and after corporatiztion second phase will be commercialization
and then finally all entities will privatize.

The charter of duties of WAPDA includes investigation, planning, and execution, of schemes in
the following fields
1Generation, transmission and distribution of power.
2Irrigation, water supply and drainage.
3Prevention of water logging and reclamation of water logged and Salind land.
2Flood control and inland navigation.
3Inland navigation.
The organization was also entrusted with the work of implementing Indus Basin Settlement plan
signed between India and Pakistan in 1960 to develop replacement works for management of
river water and irrigation system. The life saving action for Pakistan’s agriculture has been
WAPDA’s role in the field of water logging and salinity. During past four decades WAPDA has
planned and executed 60 scraps at a total cost of Rs.37.8 billion to cover an area of 19 million
acres of affected land for putting it back into production.

Funds Allocate By the Authority

WAPDA needs funds for its steadily expanding development programs and other functions in
terms of its charter. The Authority is entitled to draw upon Authority Fund, which consists of:

1Grants made by the Federal and Provincial Governments for specific jobs.
2Loans obtained from the Federal and Provincial Governments.
3Sale proceeds of WAPDA bonds issued under the authority of government.
4Loans obtained by the authority with the special or general sanction of the Government.
5Foreign aids and loans obtained from the IBRD, ADB and other International lending
agencies on such terms and conditions as may be approved by the Government.
6Sale of power.
7All other sums received by the Authority.
As a mean of self-sufficiency WAPDA is also required to finance a part of its power
development programs through funds rise from revenue surplus of the Electricity Operations
Branch. This is termed as self-financing the quantum of which is determined by the federal

WAPDA is one of the largest organizations in Pakistan today. It employs over 160,000 persons
in its regular and work charged cadres for the execution of various projects and operation of the
countrywide power distribution system.
Over the years, it has built up a reservoir of technical expertise that has made it into a modem
and progressive organization, which can be judged from the development that has taken place in
the fields of water and power resources.
Energy generation by WAPDA’s Power System has maintained a continuous upward trend rising
from 781 kWh in 1959-60 to 40791 million kWh in 1996-97.
Now in 2008 7826kmv.At the time of WAPDA’s take over of Power Management in 1959 the
length of transmission and distribution lines in the country about7000 kilometers, while the
numbers of grid stations were 59 with the total 810 MVA capacity.
By December 1997 the total length of transmission and distribution lines of various capacities
was 275410 kilometers. The number of grid stations has raised to 594 with transmission lines i.e.
220 kV and 500 kV; WAPDA is now able to transmit power from North to Punjab, Sindh and
Baluchistan. Now in December 2008 the total length of transmission is double.


The field of activities is divided into THREE wings; which are following:
1: Water wing.

2: Power wing.

3: Finance/coordination wing.


Water is the most significant source in the country like Pakistan in which an overwhelming
majority of the population is dependent on agriculture as a source of living directly. Besides
agriculture produces constitute the basis of country’s economy and foreign exchange earning,
making water all the more important.
This wing functions under Member water for effective control. The entire country is divided into
central, south, north and west zones, covering the provinces of Punjab, Sindh, N.W.F.P, and
Baluchistan respectively, for execution of scarps and surface water development projects.
The multipurpose dams to Mangla and Terbela have supplied much-needed water supply for
winter crops and produced valuable hydel electricity as bye-product to give a broad base to
WAPDA’s vast and country wide national grid.
In 1959, WAPDA was created to undertake the task of investigating, planning and executing
schemes for irrigation, drainage, prevention of water logging and reclamation of saline land as an
autonomous body responsible for integrated development of water and power resources in
Pakistan. The organization was also entrusted with the work of implementing Indus Basin
Settlement Plan signed between India and Pakistan in 1960 to develop replacement works for
management of river water and irrigation system. Since then it has been engaged in building
water development projects which include extensive research and investigation to augment
country's water resources.
Member (Water) controls the water Sector in the entire country divided into north, central, south

zones, generally covering the North Western Frontier Provinces (NWFP) and the provinces of
Punjab and Sindh respectively, for execution of SCARPs and surface water development,
projects. Chief Engineers and Project Directors implement projects falling under regions within
the zone. In addition, the Water Wing has a C.E (Coordination and Monitoring) for construction
and operation of dams and all other projects under Water wing services (TS) and two separate
General Managers for Ghazi Barotha Hydropower and National Drainage Project. The Planning
Division of Water Wing, headed by a General Manager, looks after all planning activities on the
water side. The activities of water resources and hydropower. Development and vision-2025 are
handled by three General Managers i.e. Technical, South, North, GM (P&D) and GM Hydro

Pakistan abounds in water resources comprising rivers and their tributaries, which constitute the
Indus river system, creating the World’s largest man made canal network. Every possible surface
and underground water resources utilization on large can not be over emphasized.


1The main purpose of water wing is irrigation, water supply and recreational use of water
2To eliminate the water logging and salinity.
3For eliminating the water logging and the salinity the Authority has given the task to water
wing to install tube wells in the effected areas.
A large number of Tube wells and drainage systems have been installed under these projects in
order to tower under ground water table and bring millions of acres of effected land back to
production, Number of land reclamation projects are in various batches of planning and
implementations of these projects will be according to the budget

This division performs an important role in the management of country’s water resources for
agriculture and power development and finalizes the five year plans for Water Sector through the
following formalities:
1Environment and water resources planning organization (O&WRPO).
2Planning and investigating the organization.

3SCARP’s Monitoring Organization(SMO)
4Hydrology and water Management Organization (H&WM).




Main functions of this organization are review water sector development plans, provide
information and guidance to project planners, undertake perspective planning studies and policy
issues, and furnish briefs, comments and technical notes for WAPDA and the Federal
Government from time to time.


P&I is responsible for;

Survey and investigation, planning and designing and preparation of pre-feasibility reports of
water development projects.
Research related to irrigation and drainage in upper and lower regions of Indus Plan.
Agro-economic monitoring and evaluation of irrigation.


It is responsible for management of water from the Indus River System, country’s richest
water and power source, through its formations. It works under two directorates.

Power wing

After its creation in 1958 WAPDA took up its chartered duty of power development in Pakistan

in real earnest. It is structured as follows,

Headed by member power, three managing directors one of transmission and grid stations and
other for distribution and the final one for WAPDA power privatization organization. The M.D
distribution has eight general managers, one each for planning, engineering and standards,
administration, Finance, operations, purchasing and inventory control, Recovery Information
System, and Customer Services.
Power Wing has four Managing Directors, one each, for distribution, Generation, Transmission
and Grid Stations and WAPDA Power Privatization Organization (WPPO). The Managing
Director (Distribution) has six General Managers, one each for planning, engineering, and
standards (PE&S), finance, operation, purchasing and inventory control, information services
and the customer services.
The General Manager (Operation) has eight area Electricity Boards (AEBs) under him
comprising representatives from public, provincial engineers, accountants administrators and
technicians for construction, augmenting, maintain and run the entire power distribution system
covering all four provinces, except Karachi. The Managing Director (Generation) has three
General Managers, one for each power (Tarbela), thermal operation and thermal design and
development. The Managing Director (Transmission and Grid Station) heads Grid System
Construction (GSC), Grid System Operation (GSO

Power Wing is currently headed by Member (Power). Power wing of WAPDA comprising of
Generation, Transmission and Distribution has been restructured into fourteen (14) public limited
companies. These fourteen (14) Corporate Entities.

• Four (4) Thermal Power Generation Companies (GENCOs)

1] Southern Generation Power Company Limited (GENCO-1) head
quarter at Jamshoro district Dadu near Hyderabad Sindh.
2] Central Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-2) head
quarter at Guddu district Jacobabad Sindh.
3] Northern Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-3) head

quarters at TPS Muzaffargarh district Muzaffargarh Punjab.
4] Lakhra Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-4)
Headquarter at WAPDA House Lahore.
• One (1) National Transmission & Power Dispatch Company (NTDC)


At the time of independence, Pakistan inherited 60MW of power generation capability for
population of 31.5 million, yielding 4.5 per capita consumption. Twelve years later, when
WAPDA wad created in 1959, the generation capacity had increased to 119 MW. By that time
country had entered the phase of development which required a dependable and solid
infrastructure, electricity being its most significant part. The task of power development was
undertaken by WAPDA for executing a number of hydel and thermal generation projects, a
matching transmission network and a distribution system which could sustain the load of rapidly
increasing demand of electricity.


WAPDA's hydro electric power generation capacity has increased from 4.826 MW to 5,010 MW
during this report year as a new power station, Chashma Hydro Power plant have in 184 MW
installed capacity has fully gone into operation and added to national grid, raising the number of
hydro electric power stations to 13. These power stations accumulatively produced around 17.19
billion KWH of electricity which was 10.85 percent less than the previous year's generation.
WAPDA's thermal generation facilities restructured into three limited Generation Companies
(GENCOs), having aggregate 3,935 MW rated capacity, generated a total of about 16.77 billion
KWH of energy.

IPPC 16%


As per Government of Pakistan policy, all the thermal power units of WAPDA have been
converted into three Corporatized companies, namely, Jamshoro Power Company Limited
(GENCO-I), Central Power Generation Company Limited (GENCO-II) and Northern Power
Generation Company Limited (GENCO-III). Under Companies Ordinance 1984, the commercial
operations were started on March 1, 1994 after when assets were actually handed over to the
Companies by WAPDA.

The hydro-electric power component in WAPDA system with 13 power stations, having total
installed capacity of 5,010 MW, was 17,194.75 million units during the year. This was 2,093.055
million units or 10.85 percent less than the last year's energy generation because of low reservoir
levels at Tarbela and Mangia due to overall dry spell in the country.


The Government of Pakistan Energy Policy, announced in 1994, for induction of private sector
in power generation offered a fixed tariff and a number of incentives with a view to attracting
foreign investment in the power sector for additionally of resources and sources to overcome
electric power shortage and thereby eliminate load shedding (brown out) in the country. Under
this policy, sixteen projects with a total capacity of 2,905 MW (net 2,662 MW) have achieved
financial closures. Subsequently, one project 4-e. Eeshatech Limited was rolled back amicably
with compensation to WAPDA. Eleven projects of independent Power Producers (IPPs) have
been commissioned up to June, 2001 while one such project, under testing is expected to be

commissioned in August, 2001. The commissioning of the remaining three projects has been
shifted beyond year 2008.

Performance of Division OF the Finance & Coordination Wing

This division performed extensive security and review of the customers accounts maintained in
all revenue offices of WAPDA being the main activity performed by internal audit division,
which not only reports about the status of the functioning of the billing system and ensures
proper accounting for the revenue generated and collected against the electricity consumed by
the respective consumers thus creating tangible additional revenue for the authority.
The Director General WAPDA Audit carries out the statutory audit of WAPDA. The
international audit division functions as liaison between the statutory auditors and is also
responsible for processing the replies of the Authority to the audit reports by the Auditor


The organization monitors implementation of water and power projects, lawful use of energy and
attendance to public complains.


The water wing of WAPDA is functioning as executing agency on the behalf of
Federal/Provincial Governments. The budget system of water wing originates from the
development project. Project directors assess the work to be done during the next financial year
and send their demands to the general managers concerned in November/December each year.
Director Finance Budget (Water) scrutinizes these demands on behalf of the general manager
finance (Water). GM Finance (Water) obtains the approval from Member (Water) and sends
consolidation budget of water of General Manger Finance (Co-ordination). Consolidation
demand of water and power wing duly approved by the Authority and sent to the Ministry of
water and power and forwarded to Planning Division for approval. Planning division after
necessary steps arranges a meeting in March, which is called Priority Committee Meeting. In this
meeting the projects are discussed according to the priority and the APCC and NEC
recommended final allocations. Then the total approved figures are intimated to the WAPDA

water wing for preparing the wise details, as the allocation is generally less than the demanded
by the Water Wing.
Final approval of the budget is, however, given by the Federal Cabinet and National Assembly.
As already stated WAPDA water wing is working on behalf of Federal/Provincial Governments.

Achievements of WAPDA in the past 39 years have been unmatched by any other development
agency in the country. When WAPDA took over in 1958, the settlement with India over the
water usage of the Indus Basin Rivers was being negotiated. After the signing of the Indus
Waters Treaty in September, 1960, a colossal, task was entrusted to WAPDA to construct the
gigantic Indus Basin Project comprising works of two large dams at Mangla and Tarbela, five
barrages and eight inter-river link canals in a short period of ten years which was a great
achievement of WAPDA. Immediate impact was that Pakistan changed from a food short
country to a food surplus country. Subsequently, the population explosion in the country coupled
with a stalemate in the further development of water resources for creation of new storages and
lately the persistent low allocation of funds for water sector projects prohibited the maintenance
of earlier high level of efficiencies. The valuable experience is still in store with WAPDA. The
same efficiency in the management of water projects can be regained provided the funds once
committed at the start of the project are provided smoothly and timely as per WAPDA demands.
Under its charter of duty WAPDA has planned and investigated schemes for exploitation of
surface water resources, and has constructed medium size dams at Tanda, Khanpur and Hub.
Chablat Kas Irrigation scheme near Hasanabdal & Karachi (North Karachi) Irrigation scheme
were also executed.
Two large irrigation projects in NWFP and Balochistan have been taken up to extend irrigation
facilities to 0.57 million and 0.46 million acres respectively. The stages I & II of the Chashma
Right Bank Canal Project in NWFP have been completed which form about 50% of the entire
project. In the third stage, this canal is being extended into Punjab up to Dera Ghazi Khan. The
completed works under first two stages have already brought a change in the living standards of
inhabitants of D. I. Khan and the third stage promises prosperity to the farmers of D. G. Khan
when completed by the year 2000.
WAPDA Water Wing has brought about significant development in the Irrigation and

Agriculture sectors. It has planned and executed 56 Drainage Projects to reclaim or improve crop
cultivation conditions in 16.46 million acres of waterlogged lands. Of these projects, 28 are in
Punjab, 18 in Sindh, 8 in NWFP and 2 in Baluchistan. In this major effort, more than 15,000 tube
wells were drilled and 11,000 km of surface and 6,500 km of pipe drains were constructed to
enhance drainage in the high groundwater table areas. These projects have helped to increase the
irrigated areas by about 14 million acres and have enhanced cropping intensity from 70 to more
than 110 percent.

As a trainee in FESCO (WAPDA) I had done my training in different departments as per
schedule. These departments are as follows:
1Internal Audit
2Budget and co-ordination (B&C)
3Finance (budget and accounts).

Budget and co-ordination (B&C)

(B&C) department deals two things:

 Public sector development programmed(PSDP)
 Cash foreign exchange

 Public sector development programmed (PSDP)

PSDP is an annual document which lists all the public sector projects with specific allocation
made for each project. it indicates total cost of the project, foreign exchange component, local
currency component, expenditure incurred up the end of last financial year, allocation for the
current year.

Strategies for structuring public sector development programmed

Major share of the total development programmed is allocated to federal projects which relate to
major infrastructural sectors. reminders is allocated to the provinces.10% of the total provincial
allocation is allocated as special allocation to NWFP and Baluchistan and remaining 90%is
allocated among the four provinces an population basis. Budget and co-ordination department
control the PSDP.

 Cash foreign exchange

Cash foreign exchange means to buy the foreign currency from government and pay the pak
rupees. If WAPDA want to take a loan from foreign country then foreign country sent foreign
currency to government of Pakistan and government of Pakistan exchange this currency in pak

Two main heads of cash foreign exchange:

Concluding Remarks for Analysis:

The liquidity of an organization is measured by its ability to satisfy its short term
obligations as they come due. The current ratio of an organization is 2.37 in 2005-06, 2.39 in
2006-07 which indicates not good performance increase in 2007-08, which is 1.57 liquidity ratio
should be maximum.
Quick ratio is 2.69 which indicates easily convertible stock in to cash and reduced in 2006-07,

which are 2.36, and further reduced in 2007-08, which are 1.56 the overall liquidity position of
the organization is not a fair.

Activity ratio measures the speed with which various account are converted into
sales or cash. Asset turn over in 2005-06 is 0.32, in 2006-07, 0.35, which increases, and in 2007-
08 which are show the goods position of the organization. Assets turn over ratio should be

The position of the firm indicates the amount of other people’s money being used to
generate profits. The debt position of WAPDA is also not a good.beacuse in 2005-06, debt ratio
is 31.6% which reduced in 2006-07, is 34.6 % and in 2007-08, 42%which is increase than the
previous year, debt ratio of the organization should be minimum. But here is not a fair position.
Debt ratio should be minimum.
These ratios measure the results of the business operations or overall performance and
effectiveness of the company. Profitability ratios are calculated either in relation to sales or in
relation to investment. Profitability ratio measure the profit of the organization. Gross profit
margin in 2005-06, is 16.8% and next year in 2006-07, 14.2% and in 2007-08 reduced
13.6%which show not a good position. Net profit margin in 2005-06, is 7.76% which reduced in
2006-07, is 6.69%, and further reduced in 2007-08 which is 5.47%.
Return on total assets in 2005-06, is 2.45% which reduced in 2006-07, which is 2.38%and in
2007-08 which are 1.63%its shows that the Wapda assets are not sufficient to pay its long terms
debts. The financial position is considered to be sound if the owner’s interest is greater than that
of creditor’s. In other words, the position of the business is highly solvent. Earning per share and
book value per share increases every year.
Overall position is not a fair because every ratio show no the satisfactory result., except earning
per share and book value per share So, we can say year 2007-08, WAPDA is still loss position,
because financial analysis of the organization is not a good and satisfactory results.


The Process of Corporatization was started in 1991 and was restarted in 1997. This is a three
year process during which WAPDA shall be the shareholder after which these 12 companies will
be privatized.
The major problem which is facing my Wapda is the privatization. Wapda is privatizing
its companies, which is not in favor Wapda, because when these companies are become
private. They make there own policies. They make there own price of electricity, which
will creates electricity price controlling problem for Wapda.


Wapda has to pay round about Rs. 6 billion as loyalty to the N.W.F.P, which is simply a burden
on Wapda. The Wapda authorizes are trying to reduce it, but our politician are trying to increase
it up to Rs.12 billion.


Another problem which is Wapda facing today is the bank charges on the collection of bills.
The banks increased there charges on bills collection without Wapda approval.

Another major problem which is Wapda is facing today is the line losses. Which can be stated as

Construction of Kalabagh Dam is still on papers since a decade because of restricted political
environment in Pakistan.
Same in the case with the contracts with IPPC. Before making the contract the Wapda authority
was not to be allows asking any question about the deal. The politician has made this contract
with out Wapda influence.


The higher payments to IPPC are the big problem for Wapda. Whether Wapda use there
electricity or not, but Wapda has to pay for some particular production, which is only a curse for

Billing is also the big problem for Wapda. Many government departments Big industrialists and
tribal areas are not paying there bills. Only from FATA Wapda has to collect Rs.32 billion.

Although WAPDA has earned Profit of Rs. 10,856,104 during current year 2000-01 but this
profit is very low as compared to previous year profit which was Rs. 17,329,540. This decrease
in Profit of WAPDA is manly due to very high electricity cost and other operating coasts (Rs.
61,466,489 in 1999-2000 and Rs. 85,076,052 in 2000-2001).

Tariff Rates
NEPRA, the authority to regulate electricity prices in the country, has recently revised the tariff
rates and due to this revision, tariff has been increased by 11 paisa per KWH.As electricity is
already very costly and due to this revision it will become more expensive and economy will

Long-Term Debts of WAPDA has increased from Rs. 168,321,646 to Rs. 258,397,624. This
increase in Long-Term debts is not good indication for WAPDA because due to this increase
WAPDA has to pay more interest as shown in profit and loss Account of Power Wing of


Another problem which is Wapda facing today is the bank charges on the collection of bills. The
banks increased there charges on bills collection with out Wapda approval.

Wapda should not privatize all its companies. In my opinion if these companies will work under
one authority it will be better for economy as well as for Wapda too.


The line losses can be controlled by regular check on lines, meters of commercial as well as for
industrial sector. It will reduce Wapda cost and will increase its profit.


The Wapda authority should negotiate with banks to decrease there charges, because the effect of
higher charges is ultimately has to be bear by the end user, due to which the economy will suffer.

The financial charges of WAPDA have also increased by Rs. 187,706 and this increase in
financial charges has resulted in the reduction of profit of WAPDA. In order to earn more profit
WAPDA should control these financial Charges rather should reduce these financial charges.

Although WAPDA has earned Profit of Rs. 11,501,671 million during current year 2006-07 but
this profit is very low as compared to previous year profit which was Rs. 10,537,165 million.
This decrease in Profit of WAPDA is manly due to very high electricity cost and other operating
coasts (Rs. 12,552,962) in 2004-2008 and Rs.13,001,501).In my opining WAPDA should reduce
these electricity and other Operating costs if it wants to earn high profits.

WAPDA should also invest in some profitable business like share of different companies
except the sale of electricity.


Wapda is an independent organization so it should be independent in decision making. If the
Wapda is free in decision making, it will reduce its extra cost such as loyalty cost, IPPC
payments, etc.

Incentives should be given to foreign investors who are interested to build hydropower projects
in northern areas of Pakistan.


It is well known that big industrialist and land lords especially of out tribal areas do not make fair
payment of electricity bills. Due to this unfair payment WAPDA as well as economy suffers. So
these industrialists and landlords should be completed by the state to pays their electricity bill


The contracts of IPP most be eliminated as soon as possible because they sell electricity to
WAPDA sell electricity to consumers at considerable low rates, due to which not only WAPDA
but economy also suffers.


Long-Term Debts of WAPDA has increased from Rs. 168,321,646 to Rs 178,397,624. This
increase in Long-Term debts is not good indication for WAPDA because due to this increase
WAPDA has to pay more interest as shown in profit and loss Account of Power Wing of
WAPDA. So, WAPDA should reduce these long term debts, if it wants to earn more profit.

NEPRA, the authority to regulate electricity prices in the country, has recently revised the tariff
rates and due to this revision, tariff has been increased by 11 paisa per KWH.As electricity is
already very costly and due to this revision it will become more expensive and economy will
suffer. In order to flourish economy, NEPRA should reduce the cost of electricity.


To conclude, 6 weeks internship programmed was a good chance for me in FESCO (WAPDA).
During the internship programme I observed that FESCO WAPDA have four authorities which
run to it.
First authority is the WAPDA chairman (shakeel durani) which is the highest authority in
WAPDA and then three members of WAPDA wings, which is:
Water wing (Syed Raghib Abbas]
Power Wing [M. Fazal Ahmed]
Finance& coordination (Ch. Abdul Qadeer]
Power wing of WAPDA is to generate the power resources in the country and generate the
electricity through HYDEL (from water) , THERMAL (from coal, gas) and give it to nine
distribution companies and distribution companies give its to consumer
Water wing of WAPDA is to locate the places where water can be stored for further uses &
generate the electricity, because water is the main source for generate the electricity in the
country. Water comes from snow hills and underground which can be stored for further used.
Water wing also work and maintenances the water dams in the country.
Finance/coordination wing prepared the budget of both wing .i.e. power wings, water wings and
also approval and borrow the loan to other countries for running the projects of both wings.
Chairman is the highest authority in WAPDA which controls the overall three wings. The most
important thing is that WAPDA is still loss during 4 to 5 years and if want to reduce the loss, the
privatization is the best solution. WAPDA loss can be reduced due to privatization.
Wapda, in my view, by submitting the present proposal has raised a valid point for consideration
by the Government. Naturally the calculations made by Wapda in arriving at the need for
additional capacity will be checked thoroughly at various levels including at the level of IFIs.
The comments and criticism on the proposal for new thermal capacity will help a lot in that
Wapda and other institutions in similar position will in future make such proposals only after
justification is established and is in the best interest of the country. The debate in my view has
renewed the need for finalizing the Power Policy-2002, as in the absence of such a policy
document; no IPP might be financed or set up in private sector in the country. Let this draft

Policy be thoroughly debated at different forums and finalized after incorporating necessary
checks and balances on all important issues, in the light of past experience. The stakeholders
should not block the progress of essential national projects on flimsy grounds or to reap political
gains. This Policy should reflect the aspirations of different stakeholders in the best interest of
