Electricity from India APROPOS of a news item ‘India offers electricity at Rs15 per unit’ (April 14), it may sound strange but Pakistan once had surplus electricity. In the 1990s, the Nawaz Sharif government offered electricity to India, which said it would buy it at two cents per unit, though Wapda was buying it for 6.50 cents per unit. Considering that most of India’s electricity is produced for 1.50 cents per unit from coal-fired plants, its demand for Rs 15 per unit (16.50 cents) is unrealistic. S.
