P/010/2019 Sri. Haridasan Kozhikode
The appellant is a consumer with consumer number 1167310009185 under Electrical Section, Thunery having LT I tariff. He is aggrieved by the exorbitant electricity bill dated 10-08-2018 amounting to Rs. 30,425/- for the bimonthly consumption from 12-06-2018 to 10-08-2018. The appellant approached the CGRF with a complaint against the impugned bill. The CGRF, Kozhikode has dismissed the petition on finding that earth leakage due to the inferior quality of main switch might have been the reason for the high consumption during 08/2018. Aggrieved by the decision of CGRF, the appellant has submitted the Appeal petition before this Authority. Actually an excess consumption was recorded by the energy meter in the disputed period, but the reason could not be ascertained correctly by the respondent during his inspection in the premises or by testing the meter in an approved laboratory. But it is a fact that there was flood and breakdowns in the distribution system in that area. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to set aside the bill amounting to Rs. 30425/- issued to the appellant. The respondent is directed to revise the bill for the period from 12-06-2018 to 10-08-2018 by taking average consumption of three bimonthly spot bills after 21-09-2018. This shall be done at any rate within 30 days from the date of receipt of this order. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the appellant is found having merits and is allowed. The order of CGRF, Northern Region in Petition No. OP/87/2018-19/dated 12-12-2018 is set aside. No order on costs.
