The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) Tuesday approved a hike in electricity tariff by Rs0.08 per unit on account of the monthly fuel adjustment (MFA) for September 2022.

According to the notification issued by Nepra, an increase of Rs.0.0819/kWh would be applicable to all the consumer categories except Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) and lifeline consumers of all XWDISCOs.

“XWDISCOs shall reflect the fuel charges adjustment in respect of September 2022 in the billing month of November 2022,” said the notification.

Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA-G) sought 20 paisa per unit increase in power tariff for September under FCA. Earlier, 19 paisa FCA was charged from the consumers for month of August. The FCA for September would be charged 11 paisa less as compared to August, said a notification.

The raise would be applicable for one month and would be recovered in billing month of November.
