Amid protests over skyrocketing electricity bills, the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Friday gave the go-ahead to power distribution companies to charge Rs1.46 per unit to consumers on account of fuel charges adjustment (FCA) for the month of July.

The regulator said that the decision was taken under Section 31(7) of the Regulation of Generation, Transmission and Distribution of Electric Power Act, 1997 as amended through the Regulation of Generation, Transmission and Distribution of Electric Power (Amendment) Act 2011.

The FCA will be applicable to “all the consumer categories except Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) and lifeline consumers”.

“The said adjustment shall be shown separately in the consumers’ bills on the basis of units billed to the consumers in the month of July 2023. XWDISCOs shall reflect the fuel charges adjustment in respect of July 2023 in the billing month of September 2023,” said the NEPRA notification.
The latest rise in the power tariff comes as consumers are already burdened by record inflation and high fuel and electricity prices.
