Islamabad- The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) today issued notification for increase in the electricity tariff by Rs.2.24 per unit.

The approval was given under the fuel adjustment for January. The Rs.2.24 per unit increase will be applicable on all electricity providers excluding Peshawar customers and Karachi Electric. The increased tariff would be passed on to consumers in the coming month's electricity bills. The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) had requested NEPRA to allow the increase for the next billing month on account of higher generation cost during the month of January this year. On this, NEPRA approved the raise in power tariff up to Rs. 2.24 per unit.
