The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Wednesday allowed an increase of 10 paisa per unit in the power tariff for consumers under the fuel adjustment mechanism for the month of May.

However, lifeline, Karachi Electric and agricultural consumers have been excluded from the new tariff. The power tariff hike comes as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has proposed its first budget for the fiscal year 2019-20 with an outlay of Rs 7.02 trillion.

The government has announced a subsidy of Rs 216 billion for 75 percent consumers using less than 300 units of electricity. The annual development plan also envisages upgradation of power transmission and distribution system in order to reduce line losses and check power theft.
