Behavior of students towards load shedding:
Students from all over the city consider themselves the worst affected by load shedding, they feel like they are living in Stone Age. Students think that they are serious victims of load shedding they are depressed that their studying schedules are affected due to excessive load shedding.
Problems faced by students due to load shedding:
Students facing various problems during the hours of load shedding, they can’t concentrate on lecture during class in school due to power cut, they can’t even study at home, their performance in studies going down day by day, they even can’t do their home assignments due to unbearable hours of load shedding.
Effected performance of students by load shedding
Due to heavy load shedding students can not concentrate on studies and they also can’t participate in class activities which lead to poor performance of students academically.
Reasons of load shedding:
The electricity load shedding in Pakistan would have not been a big problem to cope with but it’s made much bigger by adopting the defective policies.
There are some more reasons behind load shedding described below:
Electricity Generation Resources:
We don’t use technologies for generating electricity like Wind, Gas and Nuclear Power. We just concentrate on water electricity generation. A very few MW we generate by other technologies.
Previous Government according to Present Government:
The Present Government blames on previous Government not just for this load shedding issue but all current issues, because previous government didn’t take serious actions to fix this and on going problems. If they made some useful strategies to solve future electricity problems then the Pakistani people couldn’t face this load shedding crisis.
Power Plants Lacking:
Our Political Leaders realized power plants lacking recently. “No more load-shedding after Dec 31” on Monday, July 27, 2009 The Minister for Water and...

7. SCOPE OF THE STUDY.
In today’s contemporary world, there are certain threats that have become the most significant issues for the world economy to deal with. These include an ever increasing population, intensifying regional conflicts and the most severe threats of all; the depleting power and energy reserves. Electricity shortage and loadshedding is a phenomena that is not new to Pakistan but……………..
2. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY:
Pakistan has been facing an unprecedented energy crisis since the last few years. Its energy need are likely to be doubled in the next decade as energy consumption in Pakistan is severely high with various sectors such as agriculture, industrial, commercial etc. consuming high level of energy. The power sector is consuming 33.1 percent of the total produced crude oil and 37.2 percent of gas, coming from 173 gas fields operating in the country…………….
3. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY:
Making policies has never been the plight of our government. It is the lack of implementation which keeps the wheel of crisis moving. Today our government not only needs to take initiatives and hard decisions it also needs to give a...
...short supply in Pakistan, and as a result electric loadshedding, break downs, power outages, fluctuations, blackouts etc are a common feature in the country. Whether it is summer or winter, loadshedding is there. Some times it is scheduled, while or other occasions it is totally unscheduled.. It can be confidently said that the electric supply has never been reliable at any time in Pakistan.
Factors of loadshedding:
There are many factors behind electric loadshedding in Pakistan. These factors include shortage in river waters, over population, new connections, electric supply to villages, low generation of electricity, fewer dams, power theft, line losses etc. Then loadshedding is the result of corruption, inefficiency, mismanagement and defective planning in KESC besides incomplete projects, misuse of available resources, no generation from atomic and solar energy, lack of consensus and the apathy of the government contribute to loadshedding.
Loadshedding is a great curse. It brings untold misery to people belonging to all walks of life weather they are students, patients, businessman, industrialists, farmers, laborers, mechanics, house wives etc. It brings all economic, Agricultural and industrial progress to a standstill. The fluctuation plays...

LOADSHEDDING IN PAKISTAN
There are number of problems which exist in Pakistan, among these problem Loadshedding is the one major problem of Pakistan .There are several reasons of Loadshedding.
Here we discussed few of them and then its effect on the Pakistan. The first main reason of loadshedding is energy crisis, these crisis are due to small number of dams or may be due to miss use of electricity or may be some other reasons also effect, a huge number of person used electricity without pay its bill so it also cause loadshedding in Pakistan....
...LoadShedding Crisis in Pakistan
Electricity is a basic need for sustaining human life. We cannot even imagine how our lives would have been if electricity was not discovered. Looking at it from an economic growth perspective of a country, the creation of energy is very essential. Pakistan however has been facing an acute shortage of electricity for many years now (since 2007).
Electricity crisis and loadshedding reaches to 10hours in Karachi. In commercial and residential areas of Karachi loadshedding up to 10 hours continues however in industrial areas loadshedding up to 8 hours continues. Spokesman KESC said that on better supply of gas loadshedding likely to be reduced because of dispute of SUI Northern Gas Company and KESC people are in a pitiable condition. People said that dispute always between institutes and their result faced by other people. Due to continuous loadshedding people are also facing problem of water deficit, however loadshedding to 8 hours in industrial zone has badly affected that sector also.
Who’s to blame?
Critics blame it all on the government for lack of planning and a vision. They say no efforts were made in the past to ensure a continuous increase in the power generation capacity of the country. Even now, when the country is faced with...
...Loadshedding was implemented to save money. It also saves pollution.
Loadshedding is what electric utilities do when there is a huge demand for electricity that exceeds the generation available. The alternative is to have a brown-out where the voltage is reduced.
It costs a lot to have generators standing by just in case there is a surge of demand, and the operators of those generators expect to be paid whether they run the generators or not. An alternative is if there is a large consumer of electricity (say, a factory) that could suddenly turn off all its electricity demand, they could agree to do that on request, and it has the same benefit as adding that amount of generation to the electric grid. In fact, it's better -- as there is less demand on the wires which are often saturated at the same time.
That factory has losses from shutting down its equipment and idling its workers, but if the money it gets paid is enough, then it's worth it. This is a perfect example of loadshedding.
There are many other cases where lots of smaller consumers agree to reduce demand on hot summer days, such as by reducing air conditioning or lighting.
Someone who aggregates all these smaller cases can have the same effect as one big generator and so get the same money, and the operators of the electric grid are happy as it effectively solves the peak demand problem.
Pollution can be...
Our community seems outraged by Eskom. People feel that because they paying for their power then why should they save? Yes it is Eskom’sfault that they never placed a power back up system but we do have to live with it for a while unfortunately.
However Eskom does claim that they are doing everything possible in order to accommodate everyone. People are saying though that they are not living up to any of their promises made in the beginning. In fact many claims and promises made were written in numerous articles but were contradicted by their lack of performance and failure to deliver.
People have been so outraged and disgusted by the loadshedding but at the same time they feel so helpless. People are not equipped with the knowledge as to how to deal with no electricity.
Examples of new adjustments people have to live with:
• People now have to learn how to use traffic lights as a four ways stop. This has caused accidents due to inpatient drivers taking a gap when possible and not obeying any of the rules.
• Doing their daily chores and activities without the use of electricity.
• Businesses suffer because they run mainly on power. This mainly means a loss of customers and money. Also a loss with production and slows everything down.
• This in fact slows the whole economy down.
False promises Eskom made and failed to deliver:
• Jacob Maroga said in a...
