(Fesco) and Muzaffargarh Thermal Power Station and the Lakhra Power Project of Muzaffargarh Power Company and Lakhra Power Generation Company Limited repectivey on market along with 27 other SOEs to be sold over the next 18 months. The remaining power companies will be sold later on. The successful auction of these power companies will kick-start the complete deregulation of the country's collapsing power sector over the next several years.
