The appellant had submitted an application for service connection before the Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Dharmadam, Kannur and remitted an amount of Rs.4,70,408/- as ECSC for installation of 100kVA transformer at APA Complex. The grievance of the appellant is that the respondent failed to effect the service connection timely. Aggrieved by this, the appellant approached the CGRF (North), Kozhikode, with his petition dated 29-11-2017 requesting compensation for the delay. The CGRF disallowed the petition and directed the appellant to approach the officer entrusted by the Licensee for compensation for not maintaining the Standards of Performance in energizing the transformer, vide order No. OP 132/2017-18 dated 17th March 2018. Still aggrieved by the decision of the CGRF, the appellant filed this appeal petition before this Authority seeking compensation for the delay in effecting the service connection. From the analysis done and conclusions arrived at, I take the following decision. It is left open to the appellant to approach the authorities of licensee for compensation, if desires so. In the above circumstances the appeal is disposed of as above. The order of CGRF in OP No. 132/2017-18 dated 17-03-2018 is upheld. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order as to costs.

The Appellant is running a manufacturing unit of tyre retreading under Electrical Section, Krishnapuram bearing Consumer No. 5464 in industrial tariff (LT IVA) with connected load of 74 KW with ToD meter facility. While so, on 21-07-2017, the APTS of KSEBL, Kollam conducted an inspection in the premises and found that the energy used in one phase (out of 3 phases) was not recording in the meter. Accordingly, the appellant was served with a short assessment bill, for the non functioning of CT in R phase and Y phase partially., so as to recover the unrecorded portion of energy, for Rs. 41371/-. The appellant filed objection before the Assessing officer, the Asst. Engineer, against the said assessment. Being not satisfied with the decision of the Assistant Engineer, the consumer approached the CGRF, Central, Ernakulam, with Petition No. 66/2017-18 and the Forum disposed of the petition on 24-02-2018 upholding the decision of the respondent. Aggrieved by the decision in OP No. 66/2017-18, the appellant has submitted the Appeal petition before this Forum. From the findings and conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I decide to set aside the short assessment bill amounting to Rs. 41371/- issued to the appellant. The respondent is directed to revise the bill for the consumption for the period from 29-06-2016 to 21-07-2017 by taking an average consumption of 1016 units normal, 25 units peak, and 30 units off peak i.e. the average consumption of 08/2017, 09/2017 and 10/2017. The respondent shall not take the months of 09/2016 and 03/2017 and 02/2017 and 03/2017 for revision of the peak and off peak periods respectively as there is no recorded consumption during that period. Accordingly the respondent shall raise a bill for the meter faulty period from 29-06-2016 to 21-07-2017 and issue the revised bill to the consumer within fifteen days. The appellant is also eligible for installments, if requested for, and the respondent shall issue the same. The consumer shall pay the whole amount or the 1st installment within 30 days of this order. The subsequent installments will bear interest from 30th day of this order to the day of payment. No interest or surcharge is payable by the consumer for the Appeal pending period before this Forum and up to 30th day of this order. Having concluded and decided as above it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the Consumer is allowed as ordered and stands disposed of as such. The order of CGRF in 66/2017-18 dated 24-02-2018 is set aside. No order on costs.
