The appellant Smt. Sathi Devi is a consumer under the Electrical Section, Kollappaly, with consumer number 1157407004829 and residing at Aimcombu. The appellant received a heavy bill for the billing month August/2022 amounting Rs. 13,532/-. The appellant complained to the officials of the Licensee. The meter reader has not taken the reading for the two billing cycles mentioning the meter was not accessible as the gate was closed. The meter reader has not used the wicket gate at the side for entering inside to take reading. The billing was done based on the average consumption of previous billing cycle and the actual reading was taken on the billing month of August 2022.
