Meanwhile, the DABS officials said that the load-shedding of electricity would be increased during the cold season of winter due to some technical problems in importing electricity from Uzbekistan.

He added that after the Islamic Emirate takeover in midAugust 2021, the DABS projects worth $450 million have been stopped and nearly 1,459 acres of the company’s lands have been retaken. This comes after Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat has informed of a mechanism for retaking the company’s usurped lands in the country.
According to the officials, 70 percent of the country’s electricity is maintained from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Iran, while the remaining 30 percent is produced from domestic sources.
