The government is not implementing its decision shortly to hike electricity tariff for industries.  

Energy Minister Mahendra Bahadur Shahi, during his meeting with officials of the Confederation of Nepali Industries (CNI) at his office today, assured them that electricity tariff for the industrial sector won't be increased immediately.

He took the time to insist on the acceleration of power production, urging the private sector to invest in hydropower sector and cooperate with the government in its activities.  

Earlier, the Nepal Electricity Authority has proposed the government for increasing electricity charge by 66 per cent for the industrial sector.
