Electricity tariff up by Rs1.83 per unit


Staff Reporter


The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Thursday notified a Rs1.83 per unit increase in electricity tariff under monthly fuel price adjustment for electricity consumed in September to generate Rs24 billion revenue to ex-Wapda distribution companies (Discos).
The decision to approve the tariff increase was taken at a public hearing on November 5 presided over by the regulator’s member Punjab Saifullah Chattha and attended by member Balochistan Rehmatullah Baloch.
The additional fuel cost will be charged to consumers in the coming billing month i.e. December. The increase is not applicable to K-Electric and lifeline consumers using less than 50 units of other Discos.
The price adjustment “shall be shown separately in the consumers’ bills on the basis of units billed to the consumers in the month of September 2019″, Nepra said in its notification.
