ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Saturday increased power tariff by Rs3.09 per unit on account of fuel charges adjustment (FCA) for December 2021.

According to a notification issued in this regard, the FCA for December 2021 will be charged with the bill of February 2022, which will be paid by all consumer categories of distribution companies, except for lifeline and K-Electric consumers.

The Rs3.09 increase will put a burden of around Rs30 billion on consumers, including GST.

The said adjustment shall be shown separately in the consumers’ bills on the basis of units billed to the consumers in the month of December 2021 by the XWDISCOs.

“XWDISCOs shall reflect the fuel charges adjustment in respect of December 2021 in the billing month of February 2022,” the notification read.

It is pertinent to mention here that earlier, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) had asked Pakistan to increase electricity and gas prices in order to align energy tariffs with cost recovery.
