P/077/2017 Sri Manuel Mohan Das, Kollam
The appellant is an LT IV A consumer under Electrical Section, Veliyam with Consumer No 3856. The registered connected load of the premises is 20078 Watts and the contract demand is 20000 Watts. A cashew factory named M/s. Kevin Cashews is functioning in the premises. A penal bill for Rs. 58,985/- for the period from 04/2014 to 03/2016 was issued to the consumer on 05-12-2016, since sufficient capacitor was not installed in the petitioner's premises as per general conditions stipulated in the tariff order dated 27-09-2014. 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 (South) by filing a petition in OP No. 325/2016 which was dismissed vide order dated 26-05-2017. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority. In the absence of any positive evidence to disbelieve the contentions raised by the appellant that the capacitors were installed in the premises in the disputed period, I hold the 20% extra charges for the period from 04/2014 to 03/2016 is arbitrary and hence unsustainable. The appeal petition filed by the appellant is found having merits and is allowed. CGRF order OP No. 325/2016 dated: 26-05-2017 is set aside. Having concluded and decided as above it is ordered accordingly. No order as to costs.
