Nepra petitioned for Rs2.07/unit increase in power tariff


Central Power Purchasing Company (CPPC) on Tuesday sent an application to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) for increasing the electricity tariff by Rs2.07 per unit. The NEPRA said the application was filed under the fuel adjustment price.

The CPPC said that the increase in electricity tariff was due to a surge in diesel and furnace oil prices.

The Nepra said the authority will hear about the CPPC application on September 30th and if approved, the consumers will have to bear an additional burden of Rs25 billion.—INP
