In an attempt to reduce the costs and to control the declining financial situation of Pakistan International Airlines, official orders have been released to impose fine on employees who would leave air conditioners running unattended, as per the reports of local media.
The Chief Project Officer of PIA has given orders to fine anyone who leaves an air conditioner running unattended.
The notification read that employees could be fined up to Rs.1,000 if is found that they left the air conditioner running in an empty room.
The national flag carrier has been taking strict steps lately for making up for the losses suffered by it.
In a move to control the electricity costs, this notice has been issued barring the employees from unnecessary use of air conditioners in the office premises.
This decision is a sensible one, in light of the motive behind it. We all should save electricity as much as we could in our own personal capacity.
On the other hand, it is expected that Pakistanis would be enjoying 5-day Eid holidays on this Eid-ul-Fitr. Eid is most likely to be on June 5 or 6, depending on moon sighting.
