LHC suspends fuel price adjustment in power bills

The Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench Tuesday suspended the collection of fuel price adjustment (FPA) from power consumers.

Justice Jawad Ul Hassan, while hearing a writ petition filed, directed the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) and the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) not to charge tax on power consumers.

The court also summoned the Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) chief on September 15 and issued notices to respondents to appear before it on the next hearing.

Last week, the Lahore High Court allowed petitioners to pay outstanding electricity bills within the due date excluding fuel adjustment charges.

Justice Shahid Waheed of the LHC passed the order on a petition filed by Chaudhary Muhammad Sadiq and others challenging fuel adjustment charges in electricity bills.
