ISLAMABAD – The federal government has sent a petition to the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra), seeking a surge in electricity prices.  

Reports said that the government has sought Rs1.39 per unit hike in power tariff for consumers all over the country. Nepra will conduct a hearing on the government’s application on November 2.

The expected surge in prices would not affect the lifeline consumers, reports said, adding that the households that consume less than 200 units will be exempted from the latest hike.

Earlier on October 15, the federal government approved Rs1.68 per unit surge in electricity prices.
