ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Tuesday approved 32 paise per unit reduction on account of fuel cost adjustment (FCA) for consumers of ex-Wapda distribution companies (Discos) for October.
Nepra announced this decision after carrying out a public hearing convened on a petition filed by the Central Power Purchase Agency (CPPA) on behalf of all Discos seeking a cut of Rs0.25 per unit, but after detailed deliberations, the regulator reduced the tariff by 32 paise which will allow a combined relief of Rs3.3 billion to the consumers.
The reduction in tariff will not apply to K-Electric consumers.
In a statement, Nepra said the detailed decision would be issued after scrutiny of the data sometime later.
