A formal notification has been issued by the Ministry of Energy, copy of which is available with The Nation. According to a notification of the Ministry of Energy (Power Division), Non-ToU domestic, non-protected consumers having 201-300 units consumption would not pay any FCA in August billing month.

The notification directed all the power distribution companies including K-Electric to implement the decision.

The fuel charge adjustment was added in the electricity bills for the month of August which drew citizens' protest and outrage across the country. Under the prime minister's direction, the revised bills were being issued with an extension in due date.

Those consumers who had paid their August bills would get the credit of the FCA amount in their September bills, the notification said.
