Karachi: 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.
K-Electric has sent a legal notice to the Ministry of Energy (Power Division), asking it to stop implementation of the Nepra’s tariff determination as the Sindh High Court has given a stay order in this regard.
