P/57/2017 Sri. Ajimon S., Kollam
The appellant is an industrial consumer under LT IV A tariff in Electrical Section, Puthoor vide Cons No. 9018, with a connected load of 108 kW. The appellant is running a granite crushing unit in the premises. The APTS Unit of Kollam conducted an inspection in the premises on 22-07-2016 along with Sub Engineer of Electrical Section, Puthoor and found that the energy used in one phase (out of 3 phases) was not recording in the meter. Accordingly, the appellant was served with a provisional short assessment bill, assessing for the period from 07/2014 to 06/2016, when the meter was found recording less than the actual, so as to recover the unrecorded portion of energy, for Rs. 4,62,368/-. The consumer lodged complaint before the Assistant Engineer, the Assessing Officer on 30-07-2016, against the said assessment on 27-07-2016 and it was finalized the provisional amount assessed, on 22-09-2016, after conducting a hearing by the Assistant Engineer. Being not satisfied with the decision of the Assistant Engineer, the consumer approached the CGRF, Kottarakkara, with Petition No. OP 262/2016 and the Forum upheld the final bill issued and directed to remit the amount. Aggrieved by the decision, the appellant has submitted the appeal petition before this Forum. From the conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to set aside the short assessment bill amounting to Rs. 2,99,855/- issued to the appellant. The respondent is directed to revise the bills for the consumption of the period from 09/12/2015 to 22-07-2016 by taking an average consumption of 7360 units i.e. the average consumption of 08/2016, 09/2016 and 10/2016 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. 262/2016-17 dated 30-03-2017 is modified to this extent. No order on costs.
