Three surcharges re-imposed on power consumers

ISLAMABAD: In line with a commitment it made with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Wednesday allowed the federal government to re-impose three surcharges on electricity consumers.

The three surcharges amounting to Rs1.55 per unit would be charged to consumers paying their bills regularly to finance Rs110 billion worth of theft, system losses and non-recovery of power companies.
