BERC body too recommends power tariff hike

Times Business Report - January 1st, 2013

The technical evaluation committee of Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission on Monday recommended increasing power prices by 3.30 percent at retail level.
The recommendation came from a public hearing on a Dhaka Electric Supply Company’s October 18 proposal to the commission for hiking electricity prices by 11.69 percent.
The technical committee recommended the hike after evaluating the arguments of both parties in the hearing held at BERC office.
The BERC last increased the retail power tariff by 15 percent in September this year.
The present government has so far increased power prices for sixth time since it assumed office in 2009.
