The Forum dismissed the petition vide order No. 158/2017-18 dated 30-06-2018 by holding that the case is not maintainable as the appellant is not a consumer. Against the decisions of the CGRF, the appellant has approached this Authority with this appeal petition. From the analysis done above, this Authority have reached to the conclusion that there is no need to reassess the appellant during the disputed period and hence found the short assessment not to be maintainable. Similarly the CGRF order dated 30-06-2018 is not in order. Considering the above facts, I decide to set aside the short assessment bill amounting to Rs. 2714/- issued to the appellant.
