ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) allowed on Tuesday for an increase of Rs 1.33 per unit price of electricity, DawnNews reported.

The price change would come under the fuel adjustment charges for the month of December 2012.

The increase in price was a result of low electricity generation during the month of December last year and the charges would be recovered from the coming month's bill, Nepra sources said.

Fuel expenses incurred during the generation of 6.23 billion units of electricty in Dec stood at Rs. 55.825 billion.

The Karachi Electricity Supply Corporation (KESC) would remain exempted from the price change.
