ISLAMABAD: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has raised electricity price by Rs1.95 per unit.
According to a statement issued here on Friday, a raise of Rs1.95 per unit of electricity, on account of August fuel charges adjustment, has been approved.
Consumers will bear an additional burden of Rs30.4 billion as they will pay latest fuel adjustment charges in October bills.
