ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Thursday increased power tariff by Rs4.30 per unit on account of fuel cost adjustment (FCA) for November 2021.

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

The Rs4.30 increase will put a burden of around Rs41 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 November 2021 by the XWDISCOs.

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