P/069/2019 - Sri. V.R. Joy, Thrissur
The appellant is a domestic consumer under Electrical Section, Mathilakam. The appellant was utilizing the agricultural service connection bearing consumer number 4078 registered in the name of Sri Raphel and later changed in the name of Smt. Thressia Raphel, mother of the appellant. This connection which was used by the appellant was disconnected and shifted to another spot on request by the registered owner. The appellant submitted a petition before Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Mathilakam against disconnection through an email on 21-02-2019. Since no action was taken by the Assistant Engineer, the appellant filed a petition before the CGRF, Ernakulam which was dismissed due to lack of jurisdiction, vide OP No.117/2018-19 dated 28-06-2019. Against the above order, the appellant has filed this appeal petition before this Authority with a request to reinstate the same connection. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide as follows: The appellant who was enjoying the benefit of the agricultural connection even after the change of ownership is not responsible for the lapses in the shifting of the connection to another premises. The officials of the Licensee involved in the changing of the ownership and the shifting of the connection in another premises is responsible for the lapses. As such the service connection shall be reinstated in the original premises within a period of 30 days on receipt of this order after issuing a notice to the consumer and the respondent shall bear the expenses for the same. The phase conversion and reduction of connected load effected is also quashed.   Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly and the Appeal Petition filed by the appellant is allowed. The order of CGRF, Ernakulam in 117/2018-19 dated 28-06-2019, is set aside. No order on costs.
