The appellant is an industrial consumer having consumer number 15479 under Electrical Section Nadathara in Thrissur District. The appellant’s connected load in the premises is 22490 watts and contract demand is 26000 kVA. The complaint of the appellant pertains against the bill issued based on the meter reading taken in the month of 10/2018. The meter status of the appellant for the months of 07/2018, 08/2018 and 09/2018 were shown as ‘door locked’ and the respondent had issued average monthly bills during this period. Only after taking meter reading in 10/2018, it was noticed that huge energy consumption recorded in the meter due to earth leakage, but the respondent had billed based on the consumption by revising previous three bills from 07/2018 to 09/2018. The appellant’s request is for exemption from payment of average monthly energy charges and consumption due to earth leakage during the flood period in 2018.The CGRF, Ernakulam has disposed the petition No. 122/2018-19 filed by the appellant with the following orders. "(1) The bill shall be revised based on the average monthly consumption of 244 units. Petitioner is liable to pay the fixed charges." Still aggrieved by the order dated 28-06-2019 of the CGRF, the Appellant has filed the Appeal Petition before this Authority. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide as follows: 1. The respondent shall issue revised bills for consumption months of 06/2018 and 07/2018 in ToD billing taking the average of consumption recorded for the previous three months of 03/2018, 04/2018 and 05/2018. 2. The appellant is also exempted from average billing for 08/2018 and 09/2018 due to the flood occurred in 2018. The respondent shall be given bills for only monthly minimum charges for the months of 08/2018 and 09/2018. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly, and the Appeal Petition filed by the appellant, stands disposed of to the extent ordered. The order of CGRF, Central Region, Ernakulam in 122/2018-19 dated 18-06-2019 is set aside. No order on costs.
