The appellant represents M/s Indus Towers Ltd., a company providing passive infra structure service to telecommunication providers. The consumer number of the three phase service connection is 28074 having 40420 Watts connected load under LT VI F tariff and is under the jurisdiction of Electrical Section, Kongad. The appellant is paying the current charges regularly without any due or delay. But the respondent as per the invoice dated 23-12-2016 directed the appellant to remit an amount of Rs. 73,161/- being the short assessment based on the findings that the meter was sluggish during the period from 06/2015 to 01/2016. An objection against the demand was filed before the Assistant Engineer and he did not allow the petition and rejected without quoting any valid reason or regulations. So the appellant had approached the Hon’ble CGRF (NR) by filing a petition in OP No. 171/2016-17. The Forum quashed the short assessment bill for Rs. 73,161/- and directed the respondent to reassess based on an average consumption of 3840 units for the period from 01-06-2015 to 20-10-2015 and 4541 units from 21-10-2015 to 21-01-2016 vide order dated 10-05-2017. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority. From the conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to set aside the short assessment bill amounting to Rs. 73,161/- issued to the appellant. The respondent is directed to revise the bills for the consumption of the period from 01-06-2015 to 21-01-2016 by taking an average consumption of 3840 units and issue the revised bill to the consumer within fifteen days. Having concluded and decided as above it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the Consumer is allowed as ordered and stands disposed of as such. The order of CGRF in OP No. 171/2016-17 dated 10-05-2017 is modified to this extent. No order on costs.
