Discos ordered to refund Rs15bn

ISLAMABAD: Rejecting a request for 44 paisa per unit increase, the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) on Tuesday ordered ex-Wapda distribution companies to refund Rs1.86 per unit to consumers for overcharging them about Rs15 billion in March.

The decision was taken at a public hearing presided over by a three-member Nepra panel led by Vice Chairman Syed Masood-ul-Hassan Naqvi on the request of Central Power Purchase Agency (CPPA).
