About LESCO: Lahore Electric Supply Company

Area Electricity Board (AEB) Lahore was established in 1982 to provide autonomy to the provincial Government as well as to improve the agricultural and industrial sectors of Lahore. In 1994, WAPDA categorized its system into 12 Electricity Distribution Companies for generating, transmitting, and distributing high-quality electricity.

Consequently, the Lahore Electricity Supply Company (LESCO) was inaugurated in 1998 to improve Lahore’s energy supply and distribution system and nearby regions.

The company operates multiple Thermal and Hydro-electric Power Plants to generate a steady and uninterrupted electricity supply. Also, it has a strong presence in the Rural and Urban areas of Pakistan.

LESCO’s Mission and Vision Statement

Understand your LESCO Bill: Taxes and Surcharges

Understanding each component of LESCO customer bill helps consumers track their monthly energy consumption and total bill cost. Additionally, understanding various components in the LESCO online bill reduces the chances of incorrect billing or wrong meter reading. Some of the vital components of a LESCO electricity bill are discussed below:


FPA or Fuel Price Adjustment charges in LESCO consumer bills refer to the latest fuel cost used to generate electricity with crude oil in rental power companies. This amount varies in the electricity bill based on the change in fuel price over one month.

TR Surcharge

TR stands for ‘Tariff Rationalization Surcharge.’ T. R. Surcharge refers to the difference between NEPRA and GOP tariffs. The Government of Pakistan pays this amount for a Negative TR Surcharge by adding a ‘Subsidy’ to the consumer bill. However, if the TR Surcharge (difference) is Positive, then LESCO pays an extra amount to GOP as IDTR Surcharge or Inter DISCO Tariff Rationalization Surcharge.


Goods and Services Tax (GST) is added to the LESCO electricity bill as an indirect tax charged on the sale of electricity by power companies. Currently, the GST rate for residential and commercial consumers in Pakistan is 17%.

FC Surcharge

FC or Financing Cost is fixed at 43 paisa/Unit by various electricity Distribution Companies in Pakistan. The revenue generated from the FC surcharge is used to recover the cost of fuel used to generate electricity and to maintain the power generation infrastructure.


The Quarterly Tariff Rate on the LESCO Lahore bill is charged after every 3 months to ensure financial sustainability in the Power sector. QTR surcharge is added to the electricity bill depending on the difference between the latest price of electricity generation and the tariff implemented by the government. Its rate is determined by NEPRA and is reviewed and revised quarterly.

Deferred Amount

Deferred Amount charges are an unpaid portion of the consumer’s LESCO electricity bill to the Distribution Company. It is an outstanding amount in the electricity bill that a consumer can’t pay due to financial constraints and needs an instalment plan for that. Therefore, LESCO assists such consumers by allowing them to pay their bills in instalments over a while, with the deferred amount added to future bills.
