P-013-2022-Sri. Thomas John, Alappuzha-Order 21-04-2022
An inspection was conducted in the premises of the appellant on 28-10-2021 by Anti-Power Theft Squad (APTS) of KSEB Ltd. and found improper voltage connection to the energy meter, which led to the non-recording of actual energy consumption in the premises. The inspection team found an unrecording of 44.35% of the actual consumption to be recorded. The appellant was given a short assessment bill, after preparing a site mahazar, for Rs.4,77,751/- as per Regulation 152 of Kerala Electricity Supply Code 2014 by the respondent for compensating the revenue loss sustained to the Licensee. Since the respondent had not reconsidered the short assessment bill, the appellant filed a petition in CGRF, Central Region and the Forum in its order rejected the petition. The respondent is directed to test the metering system including meter and CTs within 30 days from the date of order. If the metering system is functioning within the limit of errors, the respondent shall revise the short assessment for 24 months taking the lost energy as 33.33% of the actual consumption to be recorded. If the metering system is defective, the respondent shall issue the bill in accordance with the provision contained in Regulation 115 of Kerala Electricity Supply Code 2014. This shall be done within a further period of 15 days from the date of receiving the test report. The appeal petition filed by the appellant is disposed of as such. The order of Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum, Central Region in OP No. 52/2021-22 dated 02-02-2022 is set aside.
