Federal Minister for Power Khurram Dastgir Friday announced that the consumers of electricity would be given relief in the fuel adjustment price in November's bills.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the power minister has announced this in the National Assembly and said that the reduction in oil prices at the international market and appreciation of the rupee against the dollar has helped to slash the fuel price.

The power minister said that the adjustment for June was Rs10 per unit while now it was 22 paisa per unit.

He admitted that during the last couple of months fuel price adjustments in the electricity bills had affected the people.

Dastgir said as per instructions of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif the government has fully passed on the relief to the consumers.

“The electricity consumers would see the relief in the electricity bill in the next month” he hoped.

He said total relief of Rs. 65 billion has been provided to consumers using less than 300 units, farmers, and flood-affected people from the power sector.

Responding to point of Mohammad Aslam Bhootani’s concerns regarding power plants in his areas, he assured that observations of the lawmakers would be addressed.
