The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) is likely to increase the electricity tariff by Rs5.62 per unit on account of monthly fuel adjustment (MFA), reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) filed a petition with NEPRA seeking hike in electricity tariff by Rs5.62 per unit under fuel monthly adjustment for December 2023.

The NEPRA will take up the plea of the CPPA on Wednesday. The approval will put an additional burden of Rs49 billion on the power consumers.

NEPRA will seek recoveries of Rs75.14 billion in capacity charges and Rs10.82 billion in land losses. The additional recoveries will be made in June this year. NEPRA jacked up power tariff by Rs4.13 per unit under fuel adjustment for November. The quarterly adjustment will also apply on K electric consumers.
