If you consume more than 300 units of electricity, your expenses are going to increase soon.

After NEPRA’s approval, K-Electric has decided to increase its charges. However, there will be no changes in the rates for those who consume less than 300 units of electricity.

Those consuming 301-700 units will have to pay a rate of Rs17.60 per unit. The rate of consuming more than 700 units will be Rs20.70.

The rates will also increase to Rs21.60 in peak hours for people who consume more than 700 units. Peak hours are between 6:30 pm to 10pm.

The new rates will be implemented from next month.

Nepra has also removed additional charges of Rs15.5 from your electricity bill. Meter rent of Rs7.5 and bank charges of Rs8 will not be deducted from next month.

According to K-Electric, the revised applicable tariff for is notified by the Ministry of Energy (Power Division). The revision is in line with the consumer-end tariff charged under the uniform tariff policy applicable across Pakistan. Moreover, no increase has been made in the rates for residential consumers having consumption up to 300 units, the power utility said in a press statement.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly mentioned that there will be no changes for users consuming less than 100 units of electricity. This has been updated to reflect the correct figure. The error is regretted.

    Our Govt and Military Keep Building Bombs and Missiles, but give no favor to Public.
    Every Govt applies High Charges of Tax, High Tariffs on Electricity and Fuel prices.

    This is murder of the common man. Why can’t we bring the corrupt politicians to justice and recover the looted money from them instead of penalizing the public. Pakistan will never change.
