Staff Report

ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Wednesday decided to increase the power tariff by Rs2.51 under monthly fuel adjustment.
According to the details, the increase in electricity prices will not apply to K-Electric customers and lifeline consumers.
The hike in the power tariff will burden the power consumers with additional billions of rupees.
It merits mentioning here that NEPRA earlier in this month allowed power distribution companies to ramp up electricity tariff by Rs 1.95 per unit to recover a total of Rs 30.4 billion from consumers.
The regulator approved the increase in tariff on account of fuel cost adjustment for August 2021.
