Ministry, Nepra at loggerheads over proposed amendments
The Ministry of Energy and National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) are still at loggerheads over proposed amendments in the Regulation of Generation, Transmission and Distribution of Electric Power, Bill 2017 – an apparent move to clip the wings of the regulator.
As Chairman Nepra began to present his argument Chairman Standing Committee intervened, asking both the Energy Ministry and Nepra to sit together and evolve a consensus on the amendments within a week. He directed Nepra to submit its reservations regarding the amendments to the Committee’s Secretary.
