ISLAMABAD: National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has rejected the petition seeking fuel charges adjustment for the month of November

The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) has requested to raise power price up to 45 paisa/unit.

Acting Chairman NEPRA said details given in the petition should be presented afresh and added that summaries prepared by clerks should not be submitted.

Acting Chairman NEPRA, Khawaja Mohammad Naim has ordered for the recovery from power generation companies the payments made to them on account of gas infrastructure development.
