As per the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority’s (NEPRA) tariff terms and conditions notified in SROs dated May 22, 2019, issued by the Ministry of Energy (Power Division), electricity tariff for K-Electric consumers has been revised upward and will be applicable from the next billing cycle. This revision is in line with the consumer-end tariff charged under the uniform tariff policy applicable across Pakistan, and no increase has been made in the rates for residential consumers having consumption up to 300 units.
Under the new tariff regime, certain terms and conditions have been revised including the implementation of time of use (ToU) billing where eligible consumers will be charged based on their consumption during peak and off-peak hours. Moreover, bank charges and meter rent will no longer be charged to customers. Whereas a new A3 General Services tariff category has been introduced and criteria for lifeline consumers and industrial consumers having tariff category B1 and B2 has been revised.
In addition, Rs. 3 per unit relief provided to industries under Industrial Support Package has now been merged into consumer-end tariff and this adjustment will no longer be shown separately in electricity bills.
