HESCO (Hyderabad Electricity Supply Company) is a public limited power distribution company formed after the revamping of WAPDA in April 1998. HESCO is duly responsible for electricity distribution in Hyderabad and its surrounding districts, which leads to an overall consumer base population of 70 million. In addition, HESCO plays a significant role in the Agriculture and industrial growth of Pakistan as it distributes power to the 2nd largest city of Sindh province.

Aim of HESCO:

The primary aim of HESCO is to distribute uninterrupted electricity to Hyderabad and surrounding areas for the people’s progress, prosperity, and growth.

HESCO History:

HESCO is an acronym for Hyderabad Electric Supply Company. It is a subsidiary company of WAPDA, which was formed on April 23, 1998, due to the rehabilitation of WAPDA by Govt. of Pakistan. The revamping resulted in the formation of twelve (12) corporate entities, Eight (8) eight distribution companies (DISCOs), One (1) National Transmission and Distribution Company (NTDC), and three (3) Generation Companies (GENCOs). 

During the revamping of WAPDA, eight distribution companies were formed. Area Electricity Board (AEB) Hyderabad was one of them. Therefore, HESCO – Hyderabad Electric Supply Company is the new name for Area Electricity Board (AEBH) Hyderabad.

Area of Operations:

To cater to its 1.1 Million consumers with an uninterrupted supply of power, the HESCO administration has divided 12 districts of Sindh province into operation circles, districts, divisions, and subdivisions. As a result, HESCO mainly has 4 Operation Circles: Hyderabad, Laar, Mirpurkhas, and Nawabshah. These four operation circles are constituted of 15 Divisions and 69 Subdivisions. In addition, to facilitate the customer needs and to make swift maintenance and construction, HESCO Hyderabad added six construction divisions and 5 M & T Divisions.

Components of Online HESCO Bill:

The HESCO bill generation mechanism involves meter reading performed by humans, so the reliability of the billed amount sometimes becomes questionable due to erroneous readings. Yet, most consumers pay their bills impatiently without checking the procedure. Hence, this results in paying for more/fewer electricity units than they consumed. 

It is necessary to know the interpretation of different components of the bill. It seems difficult initially, but with the help of the below information given, you can easily interpret the Hesco bill fields. 


Online bill issued by HESCO has the same pattern for all the consumers, except for the data in the bill. Each invoice has unique codes that serve as identifiers, including a reference number, meter number, and consumer I.D., apart from your name and address. These identifiers are unique in that each consumer is provided with different numbers at the time of electric connection to identify the invoice’s owner. For your ease, we have marked these numbers on a sample HESCO bill by the red box as shown below:

  • Reference number:¬† It starts with a number having 14 digits and ends with the alphabet. Here “U” indicates urban area consumers, while “R” indicates rural area consumers. Your Online WAPDA Bill check can be done by this number.

Charges Calculation:

The bottom half section of your bill shows the calculation of the charges. First, all the utility companies are ordered to take a snap of the meter reading, which should be attached to the invoice. The calculation process starts with the meter reading shown on the meter snap, deducting from the previous month’s meter reading to get the total units consumed for the particular month. After that, the electricity cost is calculated by multiplying the unit consumed with the tariff awarded by the government. In addition, the total payable amount is calculated by adding various services charges and taxes. 

  • L.P. Surcharge: Late Payment Surcharge applies to calculate the amount of the consumer payment made after the due date.

Complaint and Contact Information:

In case of erroneous billing, Power supply failure, or meter malfunction, HESCO has provided a complaint contact number at the bottom right corner of your invoice. You can use the mentioned numbers to connect with HESCO customer representatives to raise your complaint for a swift resolution. In addition, you can also notify officials about any electricity theft happening in your neighborhood.

We have marked the contact information in an orange box.

HESCO Bill Charges:

Your electricity bill has two (2) types of charges. One is distribution company (HESCO) charges, while the other is government charges. Details of both charges are shown in the below video.

Let’s discuss the Distribution Company (HESCO) charges first:


FPA stands for Fuel Price Adjustment. You can see these fuel charges on your monthly bill wherever there’s a fuel cost adjustment. These adjustments occur due to increased oil prices in the international market, whose charges are collected by distribution companies for a particular month.

QTR Tariff Adj / DMC

Quarterly Adjustment charges are taken on account of tariff revision by the government for previously billed months.

F.C. Surcharge: 

F.C. means Financing Cost. An amount of 43 Paisa/unit is charged to all consumers to secure collection of debt servicing of the power holding privately limited.

T.R. Surcharge:

T.R. is short form Tariff Rationalization Surcharge. This surcharge occurs whenever there is a tariff gap in NEPRA and GOP (Govt. of Pakistan). This surcharge is borne by the Govt. of Pakistan whenever the gap reduces. However, in case of an unfavorable gap, the distribution companies collect this amount for Govt. from the consumers as T.R. Surcharge.

After calculating distribution company charges, your bill consists of the following govt. Taxes:

Electricity Duty:

The rate charged per unit of electric power consumed by a single household is called Electricity duty.

V.L. Fee

A fixed monthly amount of 35 Rupees for the PTV license fee is collected from all the consumers.


Govt. deducts a particular percentage in the name of service charges for Goods and services they provide. It is calculated by getting 17% from the combined electricity duty, electricity cost, F.C. Surcharge, and QTR Tariff Adjustment.

N.J. Surcharge:

Neelum Jhelum Surcharge applies to all consumers at a rate of 10 paisa/unit.
