P/092/2018 Sri. Joseph Mathew Kottayam
The appellant is a consumer under Electrical Section, Pampady having consumer number 15340 under tariff LT VI D with connected load of 5660 watts. A penal bill for Rs. 1,15,995/- was issued to the appellant after an inspection conducted by the APTS, KSEBL on 16-06-2018. It is found in the inspection that the service connection availed under LT VI D was misused for domestic purposes for which tariff under LT I A with higher rate is applicable and also connected unauthorized additional load of 10214 over and above the the sanctioned load of 5660 watts. The appellant filed a complaint before the CGRF, Kottarakkara against the assessment made under Section 126 of Electricity Act 2003. According to the respondent, the matter of the complaint is an assessment under Section 126 of the Act and the CGRF is barred from entertaining such complaints in view of regulation 2 (1) (f) (vii) (1) of the KSERC (CGRF and Electricity Ombudsman) Regulations, 2005. Accordingly the Forum held that it was improper to entertain the complaint and directed the appellant to approach the Appellate Authority, vide order No.103/2018 dated 10-10-2018. But without complying the said order of CGRF, this appeal petition was filed before this Authority. In view of the above factual position I don’t find any reason to interfere with the findings and decision taken by the CGRF, Kottrakkara in this case and hence the order of CGRF No. 103/2018 dated 10-10-2018 is upheld. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order on costs
