Abnormality in the light meter reading of the consumer – the appellant complaints the light meter reading unusually high & requests to refund the excess amount paid. P/260/2012, Janatha Tile Works Ltd., Malappuram.


The consumer’s light meter was found faulty (recording higher than the actual) when tested. The appellant argues that the meter was faulty from the date of installation and thereby collected excess amount towards current charges during that period. It is decided to revise the last two years bills because the consumption recorded for these two years were comparatively higher than the other years.
Adding costs of Transformer at the Substation demanded by the Licensee for getting supply to the multi-storeyed building – P/317/2012 – T.S.Asok, Thiruvanathapuram.


KSEB has collected the estimated cost for giving power to the appellant, including the Transmission cost (shared cost) of installing a 12.5 MVA transformer at the Sub station, for his multi-storeyed building. But KSEB has provided the electric supply without installing the new transformer as proposed and for which the amount was collected by sharing the total cost of transformer from 5 applicants. It is held that, collection of the cost of Transformer is not justifiable here, as the Board has released power without installing any Transformer as proposed.
