Pakistani power consumers may need to pay more as govt plans to hike tariff by Rs. 3.49 per unit

On account of fuel charges adjustment (FCA) for April 2024, Pakistani power consumers might witness a major rise in tariff by Rs 3.49 per unit, media reports said.

On behalf of power distribution companies (DISCOs), the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) has submitted an application to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) seeking an increase in the power tariff by Rs 3.49 per unit, ARY News reported.

Following this request, NEPRA has scheduled a public hearing on May 30, 2024. If approved, this adjustment will be reflected in the consumers’ June bills, the Pakistani news channel reported.

In its request, the CPPA reported that no electricity was generated from furnace oil or diesel during the month of April. Instead, 22.96 percent of the electricity was generated from water, while 10.19 percent came from local coal sources.
