ISLAMABAD:  NEPRA has approved reduction in power tariff by Rs1.86 per unit under fuel adjustment surcharge. The slash is not applicable to K-Electric consumers.

NEPRA  gave the decision after conducting hearing of an application  filed by the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) today. The CPPA had contended that the cost of power generation decreased in April and the power tariff should be slashed by Rs2.62 per unit. NEPRA accorded approval to a reduction of tariff by Rs1.86 per unit, instead.

According to NEPRA, the reduction has been made under the head of fuel adjustment surcharge for the month of April. The relief in power tariff will be passed on to consumers in the current month bills.
