Islamabad: The price of electricity is likely to increase from 1.5 rupees per unit to 2 rupees, which will place an additional burden on the people of more than 162 billion rupees.
According to details, the federal government is considering raising electricity prices, which will place an additional burden on the public who has been caught in inflation and unemployment due to the coronavirus epidemic.
The National Electricity Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) will decide on this important issue on June 3 after the hearing next month. The power company has submitted a quarterly adjustment application. Among these adjustments, the application amount from October to December 2019 exceeded Rs 73 billion and the application amount from January to March 2020 exceeded Rs 89 billion.
