The connected load of the appellant is 74361 watts and contract demand 83kVA being billed under ToD tariff.The appellant is paying the current charges regularly without any dues or delay. But the respondent as per the invoice dated 14-01-2019 directed the appellant to remit an amount of Rs. 1,59,900/- being the short assessment based on the findings that the meter was faulty for the period from 04/2018 to 12/2018. An objection against the demand was filed before the Assistant Engineer on 17-11-2017. The appellant approached the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala by filing WP (C) 2092/2019 and the Court as per judgment dated 24-01-2019 directed the appellant to approach the CGRF. Against the short assessment bill, the appellant had approached the CGRF (CR) Ernakulam by filing a petition No. 109/2018-19 and the Forum in its order dated 18/5/19 decided that the short assessment bill issued is genuine and legally sustainable. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority. From the conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to quash the short assessment bill amounting to Rs.1,59,900/-issued to the appellant. The respondent is directed to revise the bill by taking the actual consumption for the bill period from 26/03/18 to 06/02/2019 and to issue the revised bill under ToD billing to the appellant within fifteen days. The appellant is allowed 11 instalments without interest, to remit the revised short assessment bill, if he desires so. Having concluded and decided as above it is ordered accordingly. The appeal petition filed by the appellant stands disposed of as such. The order of CGRF, Ernakulam in OP No.109/2018-19 dated 18-05-2019 is set aside. No order on costs.
