The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) will take up two separate pleas from the Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) and the K-Electric for further increase in the power tariff increase on the basis of monthly fuel price adjustment for the month of October.

The CPPA requested Nepra to increase the electricity price by Rs4.75 per unit for all electricity distribution companies except the K-Electric.

It said that a total of 11.29 billion units of electricity was generated in October while 10.98 billion units were sold to power distribution companies.

Nepra will take up the CPPA’s plea on November 30, while the petition of the K-Electric would be heard on December 2. The requests had been made in the context of the October monthly fuel price adjustment.
