The appellant is a domestic 3 phase service consumer bearing consumer No. 14170 under Electrical Section. Poonthura. Average bills were issued to the appellant from 10/2016 for 318 units as the meter was found faulty. The appellant was aggrieved by the bills issued for the average consumption recorded as 318 units bimonthly. Aggrieved by this, the appellant had approached the CGRF, Kottarakkara by filing a petition in OP No. 113/2019. The Forum disposed of the case in favour of KSEBL as the bills were issued based on the previous average of three billing cycles and that the appellant is liable to pay the bill, vide order dated 11-12-2019. Against the decision, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority on 17-02-2020. From the analysis done above and the conclusions arrived at, this Authority takes the following decisions. Under the provisions of Regulation 134 (2) of Kerala Electricity Supply Code, 2014, I am fully convinced that the request of the appellant is reasonable and justifiable. Hence this Authority decide that the order of the CGRF stands quashed. The respondent shall revise the bills issued from 04/2017 to 12/2018 for the average consumption as 200 units. The excess amount collected from the appellant for the period from 04/2017 to 12/2018 shall be refunded by the respondent. The refund shall be made within 30 days of receipt of this order with applicable interest. The amount of refund so calculated may also be communicated to the appellant with details. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the appellant is found having merits and is allowed to this extent. The order of CGRF, Kottarakkara in Petition No. OP 113/2019 dated 11-12-2019 is set aside. No order on costs.
