NEPRA has surged the power tariff by 17 paisas per unit.
The surge in the power tariff has come as part of the quarterly fuel adjustment, as per a notification issued by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority.
This would be increasing the burden on the consumers with an extra Rs.17 billion in a year.
NEPRA has surged the tariff on the request of the power distribution firms.
But, it would not be impacting the consumers of K-Electric.
On the other hand, the Ministry of Human Rights has decided to expand the women police stations to rural areas. This has been done for empowering the women in the sense that they should have a way of reporting to any grievances they are suffering from.
It has been noted that many domestic violence cases go unreported reason being the unavailability of police stations facilitating the women population.
