Electricity in Karachi will become more expensive, however, consumers will not have to pay for it.
Each unit of electricity will become Rs4.88 more expensive. Nepra, the country’s power regulator, has approved the price hike but the government still has to issue a notification.
This is a 33% increase and each unit now costs Rs18.69.
K-Electric says that this responsibility will not have to be met by the public.
The increase is due to the change of fuel and will not be passed on to the consumers.
