Karachi: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Thursday approved Rs. 0.83 per unit increase in power tariff.
According to details, the regulatory authority has increased power tariff on account of fuel cost adjustment of electricity.
The fuel adjustment charges for the month of July would be charged in consumer bills in next month.
This tariff hike will put an additional burden of Rs10 billion on power consumers.
The power regulator gave its approval after hearing a request by the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) that sought an increase of Rs0.83 in electricity rates.
The increase in electricity prices will apply to all consumers except Life Line.
