Power tariff likely to go up by Rs1.95 per unit
People will bear Rs200 billion burden if Nepra allows the increase.

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) is taking up the government’s request for letting it surge power tariff by Rs1.95 per unit tomorrow (Thursday).

The people will be made to bear the burden of Rs200 billion if Nepra allows the increase. However, Nepra sought suggestions from all the stakeholders over the matter.  

A couple of weeks ago, the federal cabinet approved Rs1.95 per unit increase in power tariff through a summary circulation and Nepra decided to increase the tariff by Rs3.30.
