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.

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:
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.
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 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.
