If you hear that the government is providing a unique relief package on your electricity bill, don’t be alarmed. This is not incorrect information. For three months in a row, Pakistan’s government has announced a help package for electricity consumers during the winter months.
The government has announced a Rs 3.5 per unit subsidy on electricity bills from November-December to March-April. The news is out with a notification that a statement of the relief package will soon be published in the official gazette.
However, many citizens may not benefit from this relief package as it does not cover all of Pakistan’s regions. The notification states that residents of the four provinces, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu Kashmir will be offered energy subsidies. However, it specifically mentions Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad and Islamabad as the cities that are eligible to receive these subsidies
. You may pay your Bykea invoice using Bykea. The official news of the electricity tariff relief package from IESCO, LESCO, QESCO, SEPCO, HESCO and MEPCO will be announced.
From December 2021 to February 2022, the discount option or a reduction on your electricity bill will be available. I believe that no one of you understands what is said in the LESCO advertisement regarding different unit applications. There will be no fuel adjustment, and extra costs won’t apply during the time period when you can use units for free.
If your monthly total units use more electricity or kWh in December 2021, January, and February 2022 than they did last year, you will be charged Rs. 12.96 for each extra unit.
