The sale of Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), recorded 25 percent increase due to proposed higher power tariff and long hours load shedding during September-October, traders said Saturday.

Despite increase in the price of UPS and imposition of regulatory duty on imports, the customers are still purchasing, retailers said.

The average price also witnessed an increase to around Rs 3,500 as the manufacturers have increased their price on pretext of higher production cost due to higher imports of accessories.

Dealers said despite increase in prices, sale of UPS with a capacity of running two fans and two lights has gone up by around 30 percent.

A wholesaler and member of MA Jinnah Road Electronics Market, A Aziz said that the price of a UPS to light up two tube lights and two ceiling fans at a time for almost six hours, having 105 ampere per hour battery capacity now costs around Rs 19,500, which was earlier available at Rs 16,000.

He said the commercial consumers prefer the local made UPS but after increase of Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,000 per unit on different ampere capacity, the sale of four fans and four lights UPS has increased around 25 percent as compared to same period last year.

Aziz said the dealers also charging fitting charges with a uniform rate of Rs 1,000. The battery capacity is chosen by the consumer depending on ampere power according to his energy needs.

He said battery prices vary according to its power by around Rs 8,500 to Rs 14,500, which was, earlier available at Rs 6,500 and above.

Asif Patel of Patel Electronics Saddar said the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is already charging 16 percent sales tax on the import and local supply of UPS of power ranging up to 1.5 KVA and battery charges.

He said the sale of two batteries’ UPS has a dominant share in the total sales to around 75 percent. “It is because the middle and lower middle segment of the society has no option other than to buy this utility as they are braving load shedding by KESC for hours”.

“During September and October 2008, the sale touched around 40 percent on reports of higher tariff rate on power,” Asif said. He said around 45 manufacturing units of UPS are working in the different parts of the city as cottage industry. The wholesaler have doubled orders in order to meet the growing demand.

He said along with increase in the prices of UPS, the price of a battery has also been increased.
