Kansai Electric Power Co. is considering introducing rules on punishments for executives following criticism of its leniency in the way six of them were reprimanded for receiving gifts from a former town official, sources close to the matter said Tuesday.

The Osaka-based utility is set to establish such rules also because President Shigeki Iwane has decided on punishment for himself in the scandal, in which 20 people at Kansai Electric received ¥318.45 million worth of gifts from the former deputy mayor of the town hosting one of its nuclear plants.
