The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) approved a hike in power tariff by Rs7.90 per unit on Thursday.
The increase was made under fuel adjustment charges (FAC) for the month of June, following demand from CPPAG for a hike of Rs7.96 per unit.
After conducting a hearing on the plea of Central Power Purchasing Agency (CCPA) today, the power regulatory authority took the decision. The amount will be received in the bills of July. Life consumers and K-Electric are exempted from the tariff hike.
On July 4th, the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) raised the power tariff for K-Electric consumers by Rs9.66 per unit after the power utility sought an increase in power tariff by Rs11.34 per unit.
The demand came during the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority hearing for fuel adjustment charges for May.
