power-tower-and-linesRecently the National Electric and Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) shocked the nation as soon as it approved the Rs. 5.80 increase in Power tariff. As soon as ministry got the recommendation by the authority, they have decided not to fully put the load at people at the time. So the new price is under review. Electricity rates will still increase but they may not be sudden increase of Rs. 5.80.

Now this increase is under review by Ministry of water and power, they may decide to hold back a portion of this increase and save people from further problems. Increase is now on fully discretion of ministry of power and water Pakistan.

This increase was very unfair by NEPRA when they are not being able to provide uninterrupted supply of Power to Pakistanis. Let alone uninterrupted supply, power is only available to people for just 6 to 9 hours specifically in these days. Recently elected party have lots of promises with regard to power shortage, they are getting in Government in few days, so hopefully things may get better or even worse, but lets hope for the best and trust them on this.
