The federal cabinet approved on Friday an increase of Rs1.72 per unit in the power tariff.

The decision was made on account of three different quarterly price adjustments, according to the Cabinet Division.

It approved an increase of 90 paisas on account of price adjustments for first and second quarters of FY2021.

Another 82-paisa increase in the tariff was approved to adjust the price for the fourth quarter.
