Private consultant to determine monthly coal-based power tariff

The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) will induct a private consultant to determine coal-based electricity tariff for consumers on a monthly basis as new coal power projects start coming into production.
The need to hire a consultant for coal price adjustment emanates from the fact that there is no regulatory mechanism for coal pricing and import verification process unlike oil, gas and LNG prices, which are determined by the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra).
