The Central Power Purchasing Agency (CPPA) has sought a hefty increase in power tariff for the next financial year while the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) has fixed May 23 for conducting hearing of CPPA application, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.

Through its request, the CPPA has sought an increase of Rs4.16 per unit in electricity tariff.
