The Electricity Tariff Fixation Commission (ETFC) has asked the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) to produce an action plan on reducing the power leakage. It was asked to produce the plan after it approached the ETFC with a proposal on hiking electricity tariff. The NEA has said that it is losing billions of rupees due to stagnant power price. However, the ETFC has pointed out to NEA’s data of 26.58 percent of power leakage and asked to produce a plan to reduce it. The leakage – 17 percent technical loss and 10 percent non-technical loss - has cost NEA about Rs 7 billion annually.
