Islamabad: When the National Electricity Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) decided on Tuesday to increase electricity prices by 2.52 rupees in the context of monthly fuel adjustments, Pakistanis who were already overburdened by inflation, rising oil prices, and food items were shocked.
According to an order, the increase in electricity prices will not apply to K-Electric customers and lifeline consumers. The NEPRA notice stated that the price increase will apply to November bills.
The increase in electricity prices will burden electricity consumers with additional billions of rupees.
In early October, the federal government approved an increase of 1.68 rupees per unit of electricity.
