A K-Electric spokesperson said they had a revised formula for average billing from “whichever is higher” to “whichever is lower” for April onwards.

 Till physical meter reading began subject to recovery from the health crisis and easing of the lockdown.

“We have informed Nepra about the change in formula,” she said. “We have not sent inflated bills but average bills (for March). They were issued by using the Nepra-approved formula.”

Nepra law, however, says the law for average billing – based on the rule of whichever is higher – applies to defective meters.

A spokesperson for K-Electric said that they have revised the formula for average billing from “whichever is higher” to “whichever is lower” for April onwards, subject to recovery from the health crisis and easing of the lockdown.

They added that the bills were issued using the Nepra-approved formula. However, Nepra law says that the average billing rule of “whichever is higher” applies to defective meters.

Current circumstances are highly unusual

The current situation is unique and unprecedented, so old regulations and laws aren’t really applicable. The existing law is applied after providing information to Nepra and with due legal interpretation.

 Other DISCOs (power distribution companies) are also following a similar practice (nationwide). However, consumer bills for April onwards would be issued on the basis of “zero consumption”.

 To the commercial consumers that fall within the category of non-essential sector. The current situation is unprecedented and there is no legislation in place for a pandemic or lockdown.

Therefore, the existing law is being applied after due legal interpretation and consultation with Nepra. This is in line with the practice of other DISCOs nationwide.

 However, commercial consumers who fall into the category of non-essential businesses will be issued bills based on “zero consumption” for the month of April onwards.

The law is being applied in an unusual way during the pandemic and lockdown, after providing information to Nepra. For April onwards, commercial consumers that fall within the category of non-essential sector will have a “zero consumption” bill.

 However, starting from April onwards, consumer bills will be issued on the basis of “zero consumption” for commercial consumers that fall into the category of non-essential sectors.

According to the spokesperson, although no law or policy was designed for a pandemic or lockdown, the existing law is being applied after providing information to Nepra and with due legal interpretation.

She also said that other DISCOs (power distribution companies) are following a similar practice nationwide.

The formula for consumer billing will be changed for April, and commercial consumers that fall into the category of non-essential sector will be issued bills for “zero consumption.”

K-Electric supplies electricity

The spokesperson said industrial consumers would continue to receive bills as per actual consumption as they had installed smart meters and the reading was received automatically.

 “Domestic consumers are expected to utilise higher units of electricity since they are spending comparatively more time at home under the lockdown,” she added.

K-Electric is responsible for supplying power to approximately 2.8 million people living in Karachi, Sindh, and Balochistan.

The company spokesperson said that industrial customers will continue to get billed based on their actual consumption because they have smart meters installed that automatically relay usage information.

He added that “domestic consumers are expected to use more electricity since they are spending more time at home under the lockdown.

“K-Electric is responsible for supplying electricity to around 2.8 million consumers in and around the cities of Karachi, Sindh, and Balochistan.
