P/002/2020 - Sri. C. Yohannan, Pathanamthitta
The appellant is a consumer of Electrical Section, Ezhamkulam having consumer no 1488 and a connected load of 89544 watts under LT 1VA tariff with a contract demand of 99.0 kVA. The electric supply had been given to the consumer as a three phases supply. On 15-03-2019, the Anti Power Theft Squad, Thiruvalla unit of KSEBL along with the officials of the Electrical Section Ezhamkulam had conducted an inspection at the premises of the appellant. During the inspection it was detected that the voltage connection and current CT connections of each phases are not connected properly in the meter causing wrong phase association. So as to compensate revenue loss to the Board for the unrecorded portion of energy, the Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Ezhamkulam issued a provisional short assessment bill. Then the appellant had challenged before the CGRF, the demand notice dated 22-6-2019 issued by the respondent to pay an amount of Rs. 6,27,688/- as short assessment charges for the period from 04/2017 to 03/2019. The Forum disposed of the petition vide order No. OP 101/2019 dated 03-12-2019 by ordering that the short assessment bill issued is legal and sustainable. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority on 06-01-2020. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to set aside the short assessment bill amounting to Rs. 6,27,688/- issued to the appellant. The respondent is directed to revise the bill by taking 50% of the recorded consumption for 2 years from 3/2017 to 2/2019 as stated above within a period of 15 days. The demand charge in excess over 75 kVA shall not be billed or realised. 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 the extent ordered. The order of CGRF, Kottarakkara in Petition No. OP/101/2019 dated 03-12-2019 is set aside. No order on costs.
