P/032/2018 - Sri. John Kurian Alappuzha
The appellant complaints that the respondent cut and removed the trees in his property for drawing the 11 kV OH line for voltage improvement work at Kidanalmukku under Electrical Section Charummoodu in 2008, which caused heavy loss to the appellant. The appellant requested bank interest/damages for the delayed tree cutting compensation received only after 10 years. Being aggrieved, the appellant filed petition before the CGRF, Ernakulam which was dismissed due to lack of jurisdiction. Being not satisfied by the decision of CGRF, the appellant has filed the appeal petition. The grievance of the appellant has arisen due to the delay in settling the tree cutting compensation. It is clear that the petition itself is not maintainable before the CGRF or the Electricity Ombudsman as per the KSERC Regulations. That is any dispute or complaints pertaining to such matters are not maintainable before the CGRF and Electricity Ombudsman, as per Clause 2(1)(f) of KSERC (CGRF & Electricity Ombudsman) Regulations, 2005. Hence I decide that the Appeal Petition filed before this Authority by the appellant is not maintainable. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The order No.100/2017-18 dated 30-04-2018 of CGRF, Ernakulam is upheld. No order on costs.
