Explanation of Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA)

Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA) is a mechanism through which changes in the cost of fuel used in the generation of electricity are passed on to consumers. It is determined every month, allowing for adjustments to be made in electricity prices to reflect fluctuations in fuel costs. While Nepra sets the reference tariff for the entire year, FCA ensures that consumers are billed fairly according to the current cost of fuel.


The relief in electricity bills for April 2024, introduced under the Eid Scheme, marks a significant step towards easing the financial burden on consumers. With reductions in both electricity prices and fuel cost adjustment, this initiative reflects the government’s commitment to providing affordable utilities and fostering economic stability. As citizens benefit from lower bills, this measure is poised to positively impact households and stimulate economic growth.
