The appellant represents M/s Jeeva Bricks and Metals, Vadakey Poyiloor, Kannur, presently functioning as a Crusher unit. The appellant is a 3 phase LT IV A consumer bearing number 12372 under Electrical Section, Parad, with a connected load of 88 kW enhanced from 01/2016 with contract demand of 68 kVA. The premises of the appellant was inspected on 18-12-2018 by a team of KSEB Limited led by the Anti Power Theft Squad (APTS) of Kannur unit. An irregularity of metering was detected as shortage of voltage in all the three phases and current in R and Y phases which resulted in inaccurate metering. So as to compensate revenue loss to the Board for the unrecorded portion of energy, the Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Parad, issued a provisional short assessment bill by directing the appellant to pay Rs 2703187/- for the period 01/2016 to 12/2018. An objection against the demand was filed before the Assistant Engineer and a final bill amounting to Rs. 1916574/- was issued by reducing the period of assessment to 24 months from 01/17 to 12/18. Against the short assessment bill, the appellant had approached the CGRF, Kozhikode by filing a petition No. OP No. 029/2019-20. The Forum dismissed the petition vide order dated 05-09-2019. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority 0n 25-10-2019. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide as follows: The short assessment bill for Rs. 19,16,574/- - for 24 months issued to the appellant is quashed. The short assessment bill for both demand charge and energy charge is limited to 6 months prior to the date of inspection. The respondent shall issue revised bill for a period of 6 months based on average of the energy consumption recorded for three billing cycles from 06-02-2019 to 07-05-2019, under ToD billing system. Average of the maximum demand recorded in 02/19, 03/19 and 04/19 for 88 kVA, 83 kVA and 93 kVA i.e., 88 kVA shall be taken for calculation of maximum demand. No interest is payable by the appellant till the due date of the revised bill and the respondent shall issue the revised bill within 15 days from the date of this order. The respondent shall provide instalments if the appellant desires so. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the appellant stands allowed to the extent ordered. The order of CGRF, Northern Region, Kozhikode in OP No.029/2019-20 dated 05-09-2019 is set aside. No order on costs.
