Islamabad: In line with the June 2023 directive from the ECC, NEPRA has issued a notification announcing an increase of Rs. 1.52 per unit in electricity charges. These adjustments will reflect on monthly electricity bills from December 2023 to November 2024.
K-Electric spokesperson clarified that NEPRA’s notification aligns with an ECC decision related to charges from the previous tenure. The extended duration in finalizing KE’s tariff has been a contributing factor to the current circumstances, resulting in lower charges from Karachi in comparison to other regions in the country. Operating within the regulated framework of Pakistan’s power sector, KE, like other DISCOS, adheres to decisions made by the government of Pakistan and NEPRA concerning power tariffs.
It is important to note that lifeline consumers are exempted from the recent increase in charges, providing relief to this specific consumer group
