K-Electric sends legal notice to ministry over lower tariff

ISLAMABAD: A legal battle has begun between K-Electric and the federal government over implementation of a tariff decision taken by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra).

While considering a review petition, the power-sector regulator had turned down K-Electric’s plea for a significant increase in its multi-year tariff and had raised it by only Rs0.05 per unit.

The company believes it will not be able to fuel its future investment programme with such a thin tariff increase.
