ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has approved an increase in the price of power by Rs0.46 per unit due to a monthly fuel adjustment.
NEPRA has informed the federal government of its decision.
All consumer categories would be affected by the increase in electricity prices, with the exception of lifeline customers and KE users.
The power regulator stated that the fee will be assessed from April to June.
Previously, power distribution companies were permitted by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) to charge their customers an extra fuel cost of Rs3.39 per unit for a period of four months.
While consumers already paid a 43 pence per unit premium, the cost will be imposed from March to June. K-Electric and all other users in the nation will be subject to the increased prices.
