Nepra hikes K-Electric tariff to bring it at par with other Discos


The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority has allowed to raise the K-Electric tariff from Rs1.49 to Rs4.49 in different categories to bring it at par with electricity rates being charged by other electricity distribution companies in the country.

In a statement issued on Friday, the Nepra said that the federal government had submitted a petition seeking a uniformity of the electricity tariff of the K-Electric with other Discos operating across the country.

The Nepra has allowed an increase of Rs3.30/unit in the rate of Discos under the head of fourth quarterly adjustment for FY2021-22, the statement said.—INP
