According to reports, under the discounted power package, two formulas will be used to provide cheaper electricity to the consumers. The formula will be applied to the consumers in which the consumer has used more electricity. Under the first formula, the price of electricity used for more than 300 units will be PKR 12.96 per unit.

At present, the price per unit for use of more than 300 units of electricity ranges from PKR 19.55 paisa to PKR 22.65 paisa per unit for domestic, commercial and general services sectors.
