The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has given approval to increase the cost of electricity by Rs 4 34 paise per unit.
According to the sources, the approval to increase the price of electricity was given in the fuel adjustment of July and the July fuel adjustment notification is likely to be issued soon.
Sources say that July’s fuel price adjustment will have an additional burden of 69 billion rupees on electricity consumers.
Sources said that the increase in electricity price will not be applied to K Electric.
On the other hand, NEPRA has issued a notification for increasing the price of electricity according to which the price of electricity has been increased under the fuel adjustment of July.
