Electricity prices raised yet again by NEPRA

ISLAMABAD – Electricity Prices have been raised in Pakistan yet again.

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Thursday approved a hike of 47 paisa per unit in the tariff of all power distribution companies, except for K-Electric, on account of fuel cost adjustment for November 2018.

The increase came after the cost of fuel went up in November while power consumers paid lower tariffs. The tariff revision would help recover the lost amount, the regulator said.

According to the notification, the tariff increase will not be charged to lifeline, K-Electric and agricultural consumers.

On November 14, the NEPRA had approved an increase of Rs0.41 per unit in the electricity tariff.
