The ongoing load shedding may continue till September of this year. As a result, the government wants to reduce the demand of electricity in order to check load shedding. Under this situation, it is being considered to reduce office timing. Besides, the issue of  work from home is under consideration, said Toufiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury, power and energy adviser to the prime minister.

He made the remarks after meeting a with high officials of gas and electricity production and distribution organisation at Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in the capital on Thursday.

The energy advisor said, “This time is like a war. All have to cooperate to this end. In the next September, the country will get imported power from India. At the same time, Rampal Power Plant may go for power generation. The situation will improve that time.”
