The appellant has availed a temporary electric connection for construction purpose from the Sreekandapuram Electrical Section having consumer number 1166477042794. After completion of the construction, the appellant has submitted application for tariff change and meter replacement on 19-03-2019 and remitted required fees. The meter replaced on 28-03-2019. On 08-06-2019, a current bill for Rs. 1965 was issued for the period from 08-04-2019 to 08-06-2019 for the consumption of 239 units under commercial tariff. Aggrieved by this, appellant approached the Section authorities with request to rectify the wrong tariff fixation and for refund of the excess amount remitted. Since this mistake has not been corrected by the KSEB, in spite of repeated requests, the appellant filed a petition before the CGRF, Kozhikode in petition no.

From the analysis done and conclusions arrived at, I take the following decision.’ It is left open to the appellant to approach the authorities of licensee for compensation within a period of 15 days from the date of receipt of this order as per regulation 16 of Kerala State Electricity Regulatory Commission (Standards of Performance of Distribution Licensees) Regulations 2015, if desires so.
