In a disappointing development for electricity consumers, there are expectations of an impending increase in electricity prices due to the monthly fuel price adjustment.

Both K-Electric and CPPA (Central Power Purchasing Agency) have separately submitted applications to NEPRA (National Electric Power Regulatory Authority) concerning fuel adjustment charges.

According to K-Electric’s application, the power tariff is likely to go up by Rs2.33 per unit.

Similarly, consumers of government distribution companies may face an increase of Rs1.89 per unit in electricity prices.

These applications are related to the fuel price adjustment for the month of June, and NEPRA has scheduled a hearing on July 26 to review the petitions filed by K-Electric and CPPA.

If approved, this fuel price adjustment will lead to additional charges for electricity consumers for one month.
