Overwhelmed by inflation, rising oil and food prices, Pakistanis were in for a shock when the National Electricity Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Thursday decided to hike electricity tariff by Rs. 9.89 per unit.
According to the National Regulatory Authority, the rate increase occurred as part of the fuel price adjustment(FPA) for the month of June200.
This decision has imposed an additional burden of billions of rupees on electricity consumers. The increase does not apply to lifetime consumers.
The amount of fuel price adjustment will be appear in August Bill 2022. It is very sad news that the consumer of Pesco already bearing difficulties in paying the regular bill and this increase will create extra burden on the Pesco consumers. This will apply on all the other companies of WAPDA.
The pesco bill will be night mare for the consumer of pesco. The GOVT must think about the increase in FPA on regular braise. On the other hand the GOVT says that the increase in fuel price at international market they have to take such kind of steps. May in future there will be relief for the consumer of pesco.
