From the analysis done and the conclusions arrived at, which are detailed above, I take the following decisions. The short assessment bill for Rs. 16,875/- is quashed.

The appellant is a domestic consumer with consumer number 1156041037571 under Electrical Section North Paravur, Ernakulam. He is aggrieved by the exorbitant electricity bill amounting to Rs. 18447/- issued to him on 07-06-2018. The appellant approached the Assistant Engineer with a complaint over the working of the meter and the impugned bill, who then installed a check meter in the premises from 12-06-2018 to 19-06-2018. However, no variation or discrepancies were noticed in the existing meter, as the recordings in both meters matched very closely. Being aggrieved, he filed petition before the CGRF, Ernakulam and still not satisfied by its decision in order no. OP 25/2018-19 dated 29-09-2018, the appellant has filed the appeal petition before this Authority. In view of the above discussions, there is no justification for issuing such a huge bill to the appellant even without analyzing or finding out the exact reason for the excess consumption. Hence the disputed bill is hereby quashed. The respondent is directed to issue revised bill based on average consumption of three bi months for the period preceding the date of the bill challenged before this Authority. The order of CGRF is set aside. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The appeal petition is allowed. No order as to costs.
