The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority has allowed to raise the K-Electric tariff from Rs1.49 to Rs4.49 in different categories to bring it at par with electricity rates being charged by other electricity distribution companies in the country, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

It added that the fuel adjustment would be charged for four months from January-April 2023. 

The tariff hike for K-Electric would be in the region between Rs1.49 and Rs4.45 in different categories.
