NEPRA Proposes Fixed Electricity Charges for Pakistani Homes: What You Need to Know

Pakistan’s National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) National Electric Power Regulatory Authority – NEPRA ( has sent a proposal to the federal government that could significantly impact household electricity bills.

The proposal outlines the introduction of fixed charges for domestic electricity consumers, starting from July 1, 2024.

Fixed Charges: A Breakdown

NEPRA’s proposal integrates fixed charges into the existing average basic electricity tariff.

These charges vary based on a household’s monthly electricity consumption:

  • 301-400 units: Rs 200 fixed charge
  • 401-500 units: Rs 400 fixed charge
  • 501-600 units: Rs 600 fixed charge
  • 601-700 units: Rs 800 fixed charge
  • Above 700 units: Rs 1,000 fixed charge

Previously, domestic electricity bills in Pakistan did not include fixed charges. This new proposal represents a potential shift in how households pay for electricity.

Awaiting Government Approval

The final decision regarding the implementation of these fixed charges and the overall electricity tariff structure rests with the Pakistani federal government. NEPRA’s proposal currently awaits their review and approval.

Potential Impact on Consumers

The introduction of fixed charges could have a noticeable impact on household budgets, particularly for those who consume less electricity. Lower-consumption households may see a relatively larger increase in their bills compared to high-consumption users.

Stay Informed: Monitor the Situation

The Pakistani energy sector faces ongoing challenges. This proposal reflects efforts to address these challenges and potentially improve the financial sustainability of the power sector. It’s important to note that electricity costs in Pakistan are already a significant concern for many households. The potential addition of fixed charges may further strain household budgets.
