The FCA for Dec 2021 will be charged with the bill of February 2021, which will be paid by all consumer categories of distribution companies, except for lifeline customers of all ex-WAPDA distribution companies (XWDISCOs).
“While effecting the fuel adjustment charges, the concerned XWDISCOs shall keep in view and strictly comply with the orders of the courts notwithstanding this order,” the notification read. The masses will pay Rs 30 billion in form of increase in the electricity prices.
