The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has decided to reduce the electricity tariff per unit by Rs. 0.99 in the fiscal year 2021’s final quarter adjustment.
It is implemented to the months of April, May, and June 2021, and to be reflected in the billing months of December 2021, as well as January and February 2022.
Electricity customers in all slabs, except K-Electric customers, will receive Rs. 22.45 billion in relief over the next three months.
NEPRA has also notified the federal government of the latest decision, and an official announcement will be issued once the federal Cabinet okays the power tariff reduction.
Earlier this week, NEPRA reserved its decision on a petition seeking additional charges of Rs. 4.33 per unit for power consumers due to the November monthly fuel price adjustment.
The petition was submitted by the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA), and the final hearing was held on Wednesday by NEPRA. If CPPA’s request is granted, electricity consumers will face an additional burden of Rs. 29 billion.
