Understanding IESCO Bill
There are several things to check on your bill to understand how much tax you are paying and other stuff. Here is a concise guide for you to understand your IESCO Bill.
The reference number is important as it is the basic identification of your bill. The power supply company recognizes your connection with your reference number. You can pay your bill from different apps and ATMs as long as you know your reference number. Also, you can get a duplicate copy of the IESCO bill by providing your reference number.
It is the date when you registered yourself in the power supply company for electricity connection.
You will find some other dates on the top right corner of your bill. There is a reading date, due date, and issue date. Reading data is when the agent took your meter reading. The due date is the last date to pay your bill without any surcharges and the issue date is when the bill was issued.
FPA means Fuel Price Adjustment. It is the amount to adjust electricity fees based on fuel price fluctuation. This amount goes to the fuel pricing of rental power companies that generate electricity from Crude Oil.
FC means Financing Cost. FC Surcharge was first decided to be 43 paisa/unit to ensure collection of debt servicing of the Power Holding Private Limited.
TR stands for Tariff Rationalization Surcharge. As NEPRA determines tariff and the Government notifies a uniform tariff for all Distribution Companies. TR Surcharge is the difference of tariff determined by NEPRA and GOP. If the difference is negative, the distribution company will pay to GOP as “Inter Distributing Company Tariff Rationalization Surcharge. But if this difference is positive, the GOP will pay it as “Subsidy.”
Depending on your area, you might receive the IESCO bill on different dates of the month. But you can check your bill history to find out your bill reading date, due date, and issue date to get an idea about the billing timing.
