On Saturday, the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) announced an increase in the electricity cost by Rs 4.56 per unit, posing an additional challenge for power consumers.
NEPRA notified users of the rise in electricity tariffs, attributing it to fuel adjustment charges for the month of December 2023.
The warning stated that power customers will face higher expenses this month. However, Lifeline customers have been exempt from the hike.
The hike in electricity tariffs is likely to cost power consumers an additional Rs. 39.8 billion. Electricity costs have risen by Rs. 8.69 in the last two months as a result of fuel price modifications.
