P/089/2019 Sri. Raveendran Pathanamthitta
The appellant is an agricultural consumer having a connected load of 840 Watts, with consumer No. 7754 under Electrical Section, Enath, who is aggrieved by the exorbitant electricity bill issued to him on 27-08-2019 for an amount of Rs. 17840.00. The date of connection of the electric connection is 27.12.2004 and the single phase electric connection is availed for agriculture pumping. Aggrieved by this, the appellant filed a petition before the CGRF, Kottarakkara. Later the respondent revised the bill to Rs.10762/- . The CGRF disposed of the petition vide order OP No. 95/2019 dated 23-10-2019 that the disputed amount is liable to be remitted by the appellant and also directed the respondent to allow 12 equal monthly instalments without interest to the appellant for remitting the bill amount. Against the decision of the Forum, the appellant has filed the Appeal petition before this Authority on 20-11-2019. The respondent and the appellant are equally responsible for the energy loss in the premises and hence both shall bear the loss. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to set aside the disputed bill amounting to Rs. 10,762/- issued to the appellant. The appellant shall remit 50% of the disputed amount of Rs. 10,762/-. 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 is found having some merits and is allowed to this extent. The order of CGRF, Kottarakkara in Petition No. OP/95/2019 dated 23-10-2019 is set aside. No order on costs.
