K-Electric consumers will have to bear an extra burden of Rs1.91 billion in the bills of January.
According to a notification issued in this regard, an increase of Rs1.0751 per unit in electricity tariff for K-Electric consumers is on account of fuel charges adjustment (FCA) for October 2021.
The NEPRA decision will not be applicable to lifeline consumers.
NEPRA announced the verdict after conducting a hearing of the application filed by K-Electric for an increase in the power tariff by Rs5.18 per unit in quarterly fuel price adjustment.
The regulatory authority reserved its ruling on November 30, approving an Rs1.0751 per kWh increase in power tariff on account of the October FCA.
It is pertinent to mention that KE consumers were already billed an additional Rs3.75 per unit in their December bills on account of FCA for September.
