NEPRA approves tariff hike of Rs4.30 per unit on Thursday on account of fuel adjustment charges.
According to the notification issued by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority, the power tariff has been increased by Rs4.30 per unit on account of fuel cost adjustment (FCA) for November 2021.
The FCA for November 2021 will be charged with the bill of January 2022, which will be paid by all consumer categories of distribution companies, except for lifeline and K-Electric consumers.
As per the notification, the said adjustment shall be shown separately in the consumers’ bills.
“XWDISCOs shall reflect the fuel charges adjustment in respect of November 2021 in the billing month of January 2022,” the notification read.
The Rs4.30 increase will put a burden of around Rs41 billion on consumers, including GST.
