The Appellant is running an ice factory under the name and style of M/s Sincere Ice Factory bearing consumer No.5754 under LT-IV A Tariff with a connected load of 37614 watts and contract demand of 38 kVA under Electrical Section, Eranhickal. The registered owner of the connection is Sri. M.P. Chandran. On 01-09-2018, while taking the reading, it was noticed that voltage in one phase was not getting recorded in the meter. Consequently, the premises of the consumer was inspected on 24-09-2018 by a team of KSEB Limited led by the Anti Power Theft Squad (APTS) of Kozhikode unit. A site mahazar was prepared by the Sub Engineer Sri. Illiyas of Electrical Section, Eranhickal. An irregularity of metering was detected as the B phase voltage connection to the energy meter was rusted and as a result the same got disconnected at the taping point and due to this reason B phase voltage was missing at the terminal of the energy meter. So as to compensate revenue loss to the Board for the unrecorded portion of energy, the Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Eranhickal, issued short assessment bill by directing the appellant to pay Rs 4,41,504/-. Aggrieved by the short assessment bill, the appellant filed petition before CGRF, Kozhikode requesting to quash the bill. The Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum disposed the OP No.116/2018-19 filed by the appellant and ordered on 11-02-2019 that the short assessment is limited to one year and the appellant is allowed to remit the amount assessed in 20 installments. Still aggrieved by the said order, the appellant has filed the Appeal Petition before this Authority. For the reasons detailed above, the appeal Petition No. P/024/2019, filed by the appellant stands dismissed as it lacks merits. The order dated 11-02-2019 in OP No116/2018-19 of CGRF, Kozhikode is upheld. But an error in the calculation statement regarding the consumption during the normal period from 1-7-2018 to 1-8-2018 is to be corrected by the respondent and to revise the bill accordingly. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order on costs.
