P/015/2020 Sri. K.M. Mathew, Pathanamthitta
The appellant is a domestic consumer under Electrical Section, Thiruvalla bearing consumer number 11139. The appellant was aggrieved by the bill issued in 05/2019 amounting Rs. 19,524/- for the consumption recorded as 1396 units and lodged a complaint before the Section authorities disputing the accuracy of the respective energy meter at the premises. The disputed energy meter was replaced for testing and test report shows that the disputed meter was faulty. So, the disputed bimonthly bill for Rs. 19,524/- was revised based on the average consumption after replacement of the meter as 817 units bimonthly. The appellant’s grievance in this petition is that he had remitted excess electricity charges more than his actual energy consumption for the past ten years due to the faultiness of the meter and hence requested to refund the excess amount remitted by him. The appellant had approached the CGRF, Kottarakkara by filing a petition in OP No. 130/2019. The Forum disposed of the case in favour of KSEBL and dismissed the petition due to lack of merit, vide order dated 29-01-2020. Against the decision, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority on 18-02-2020. For the reasons detailed above, the appeal petition No. P/015/2020, filed by the appellant stands dismissed as it is found having no merits. The order dated 29-01-2020 in OP No. 130/2019 of CGRF, Kottarakkara is upheld. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order on costs.
