Gas just went up, electricity and petrol may also become expensive

News by:

Gas prices just went up. Now the government is likely to make electricity more expensive when the Economic Coordination Committee of the cabinet reviews the proposed revision in power tariffs on Tuesday (today).

The National Electric Power Regulator Authority has proposed to raise tariffs of power distribution companies, such as K-Electric by Rs3.99 per unit. The energy ministry is expecting the ECC may approve at least Rs2 per unit increase in the prices.

The current rate for consumption of up to 300 units is around Rs12 per unit. If you use between 301 and 700 units, the rate is Rs16 per unit and if you go over 700 units you are charged Rs18 per unit.
