First of all the billing formula is pretty stupid.

For first 1 HM3 you pay (127 * 3.51 ) = 445 (without gst)

As soon as HM3 becomes 1.01 you pay (264 *3.51) = 926 (without gst ofcourse)

You pay more than double for 0.01 HM3 increase of usage.

For first 2 HM3 you pay (264*7.02) = 1853
And for 2.01 you pay (275 *7.05) = 1938
Not so steep here , right?
For first 3 HM3 you pay (275 *10.53) = 2895
For the first 3.01 HM3 you pay (780*10.56) = 8236
BANG !!!!!
For the additional 0.01 usage of HM3 you pay almost thrice the price.

Lets go further

For first 4 HM3 you pay (780 * 14.04) = 10951.

For the adiditional 0.01 HM3 you pay (14.07 *1460) = 20460.(without gst ofcourse)

Almost double again.

Flat rates seem so stupid here , a step up in billing could have been a way to go.

This sort of slab pricing system is there is many company, the more you use the steeper the charges get.

But I agree the slab rate increases are somewhat unrealistic.

Here are our electricity slab rates just for comparison

More stupid than unrealistic , going from 275 straight to 780 and then 1460. Ok you want to charge the 'rich' guys but the difference between the rich and poor here is 0.01 HM3.

But the formula should not be on flat rate.
It should on slab bases like
For first 1 HM3 you pay (127 * 3.51 ) = 445 (without gst)

As soon as HM3 becomes 1.01 you pay (264 *3.51) = 926 (without gst ofcourse)
It should be like this (127 * 3.51 + 0.01 * 264 + = 447.64 and same till the top as in electricity bills and Tax calculation.
This is just un professional approach, if I have any authority should fire the head of billing department and all the signatory who approved these formula.

Even though with the change masses of Pakistan (around 77%) will not get benefits but at-least those who suffer (23%) will get some relief.

Just for clarification I am LPG consumer (using cylinder bottles not pipe gas)

مجھے آج ہی اپنے گھر کے گیس کے بل موصول ہوئے ہیں ، ہمارے دو منزلہ گھر میں دو گھرانوں کی وجہ سے دو میٹر لگے ہوئے ہیں - دو چولہے ، ٤ ہیٹر اور ایک گیزر استعمال ہوتے رہے ہیں

دونوں بلز ملا کر 4770 زائد بل بنا ہے جس میں 1600 پچھلے ماہ کا بھی ہے جو میں ادا کرنا بھول گیا تھا

ہمارے گھر میں چار ہیٹر ضرور چلتے ہیں لیکن شام کے وقت ایسے نہیں کہ سارا دن .. بلکہ پچھلے دنوں شام کو 6 سے 9 بجے تک گیس بھی نہیں ہوتی تو ہم دن کو 3 سے 5 اور پھر 9 بجے کے بعد ہی تین چار گھنٹے چلاتے تھے ..

اسی طرح ہم نے گیزر کو بھی وارم پر رکھا ہوا ہے ، میں نے اکثر دیکھا ہے لوگ سردیوں میں فل گیزر کر دیتے ہیں جس کی وجہ سے گیس کا استعمال بہت زیادہ ہوتا ہے اور ظاہر ہے بل بھی زیادہ ہی آتا ہے


ویسے آپ ایک بار انکے دفتر کا چکر لگا لیں، اس بار تکنیکی مسائل کی وجہ سے لوگوں کے بل بھی زیدہ آئے ، میرے دوست کا 48000 بل تھا جسے انہوں نے کم کر کے 24000 کر دیا ہے - وہ بھی تین قسطوں میں

اس مہینے کا گیس کا بل سب کو زیادہ ہی موصول ہوا، ہمارے گھر میں بھی اس بار 3 گناہ زیادہ بل موصول ہوا۔ عجیب ہی صورت حال ہے۔
