NEPRA Grants Approval for Rs. 40 Billion in Consumer Charges

On Saturday, the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) declared a rise in electricity tariffs by Rs 4.56 per unit, posing an added challenge for power consumers. NEPRA, through an official notification, communicated the tariff increase, citing fuel adjustment charges for December 2023 as the primary reason.

The notice outlined that electricity consumers would face extra costs this month, except for Lifeline consumers who are exempt from the increment. This hike in electricity tariffs is anticipated to impose an additional financial burden of Rs. 39.8 billion on power consumers. Over the past two months, electricity prices have surged by Rs. 8.69 due to adjustments in fuel prices.
