P/052/2017 Sri. Arun R Chandran, Ernakulam
The appellant represents M/s Indus Towers Ltd., a company providing passive infra structure service to telecommunication providers. The consumer number of the appellant’s three phase service connection is 23195 with tariff LT VI F which is coming under the jurisdiction of Electrical Section, Parassala, Thiruvananthapuram. The appellant is paying the current charges regularly without any dues or delay. But the respondent as per the invoice dated 08-11-2016 directed the appellant to remit an amount of Rs. 43,256/- being the short assessment based on the findings that the meter was faulty for the period from 05/2014 to 12-01-2015. An objection against the demand was filed before the Assistant Engineer on 18-11-2016. He rejected the petition without quoting any valid reason or regulations and directed the appellant to remit the short assessed amount. Against the short assessment bill, the appellant had approached the Hon’ble CGRF (SR) by filing a petition No. 330/2016. The Forum quashed the short assessment bill dated 08-11-2016 and directed the respondent to revise the bill foe two billing cycles based on the average of succeeding three billing cycles after the meter replacement. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority. In view of the above findings, the revised short assessment dated 26-04-2017 for Rs. 43,559/- is hereby quashed. The order dated 30-03-2017 of CGRF (SR) in OP No. 330/2016 is set aside. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order as to costs.
