The Appellant bearing consumer No.8497 is an industrial consumer under LT-IV A Tariff with a connected load of 126000 watts under Electrical Section, Charummoodu. The premises of the consumer was inspected on 28-01-2019 by a team of KSEB Limited led by the Anti Power Theft Squad (APTS) of Alappuzha unit. An irregularity of metering was detected as the B phase CT is not accurate and resulted in inaccurate metering. So as to compensate revenue loss to the Board for the unrecorded portion of energy, the Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Charummoodu, issued short assessment bill by directing the appellant to pay Rs 1,46,259/-. Aggrieved by the short assessment bill, the appellant filed petition before CGRF, Ernakulam requesting to quash the bill. The Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum disposed the OP No.120/2018-19 filed by the appellant and ordered on 24-07-2019 that the bill issued, limiting the period of short assessment to two years is genuine and legally sustainable. 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/063/2019, filed by the appellant stands dismissed as it is found having no merits. The order dated 24-07-2019 in OP No. 120/2018-19 of CGRF, Ernakulam is upheld. But the respondent is directed to issue a revised bill for 24 months under ToD billing to the appellant within fifteen days. The appellant is allowed 24 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. No order on costs.
