Earlier hike in August 2015 as appears below:

CNG for automobiles has been increased to 35 TK per cubic meter from previous 30 taka.

Starting September 1, home users will have to pay Tk200 more for using single and double gas burners and Tk0.18 more for using every unit of electricity.

monthly bill for single gas burners will be Tk600 – instead of the current Tk400 – and that of double burners Tk650 – instead of Tk450 effective from Sept 1, 2015. Thus, the average price hike for this utility stands at 26.29%

Currently, each unit of electricity costs a retail user Tk6.15. From next month, this will be Tk6.33, which means this tariff will see a 2.93% raise. However, those domestic users who consume between 1-50 units per month – the “lifeline tariff” slab – will continue to pay the old prices.

The BERC yesterday also announced a Tk0.23 or 4.93% higher tariff per unit for bulk consumption of electricity, propelled by a 0.05% rise in transmission charges. This means that the wholesale price of every unit of electricity will rise from Tk4.67 to Tk4.90.

he regulator has hiked retail power tariffs – in the Tk3.83-Tk11.98 range – for the other slabs as well which apply to small industries, non-residential and commercial offices, medium voltage (11kV general use), extra high voltage (132kV general use), high tension (33kV general use), street lights and water.
