Earlier,  Inflation is a major issue in Pakistan, and people are paying higher electrical bills. The Power Regulator recently approved a significant raise of Rs 3.28 per unit, causing resentment among already taxed people facing astronomical electricity prices.

The increase in the power price is due to a fuel cost adjustment, which is part of the quarterly tariff adjustment (QTA) system. This adjustment tries to reduce the additional burden of capacity charges caused by a rise in interest rates, rupee depreciation, and other economic variables.
