This decision, which awaits final approval from the federal government, will see the average basic electricity tariff rise from Rs 29.78 to Rs 35.50 per unit starting July 1, 2024.

Simultaneously, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has announced a reduction in electricity prices for industries and exports by Rs 10.69 per unit.
