NEPRA approves Rs2.23 per unit cut in power tariff
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has on Tuesday approved Rs2.23 per unit reduction in power tariff.
The Central Power Purchasing Agency-Guarantee (CPPA-G) had filed a petition before the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) for a tariff cut by Rs2.13 on behalf of the distribution companies under fuel price adjustment.
However, the regulatory authority took the decision of relief on Tuesday in a hearing held under NEPRA Chairman Tariq Sadozai and approved Rs2.23 per unit reduction in power tariff.
The officials told NEPRA authorities that with the reduction in power tariff, the consumers will be given a relief of Rs25 billion.
However, domestic and agriculture consumers using 300 units in a month and consumers of K-Electric would not get relief in electricity bills.
