The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) has allowed 64 paisa per unit increase in power tariff under the fuel price adjustment formula. The new rates will be visible in August bills.
Power production companies had demanded an increase of Rs1.2 per unit. Nepra had allowed a 14 paisa increase in electricity tariff of eight distribution companies of Wapda on June 29.
The previous increase was applied from the month of May and the new amount was to be recovered from consumers in the next month’s bills.
The government has already increased electricity tariff by 60 per cent in the last 15 months.
