Naqvi’s orders entail rigorous action against all perpetrators of over-billing, regardless of their status or location within Pakistan. He stresses that under no circumstance will over-billing be overlooked.

Additionally, Naqvi urges authorities to escalate efforts in combating electricity theft. He demands utmost efficiency from officers of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in curbing over-billing and identifying power thieves.
