ISLAMABAD (92 News) - National Electricity Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has increased the price of electricity by Rs7.90 per unit.

The increase in electricity prices by NEPRA was made in the context of the May monthly fuel adjustment which will be collected in next month's bills. The people will be burdened with more than Rs 113 billion.

During the hearing, Chairman NEPRA remarked that it was not possible to provide relief to the consumers due to high cost of imported fuel.
