The grievance of the appellant is that the respondent issued an exorbitant bill amounting to Rs. 23,119/- on 28-9-2017 for a bimonthly consumption of 2811 units. The appellant approached the respondent with a complaint against the impugned bill. But the respondent stated that they have checked the accuracy of the meter and no variations or discrepancies were noticed during the testing of the existing meter.

Appellant shall be allowed to remit the previous bill amount for the month of 9/2017 for the time being.

The appellant had lodged complaints before KSEB against the erection of a ‘Stay and Wire’ in his property, by the KSEBL Officials, Electrical Section, West Hill, Kozhikode without obtaining his permission. This action was said to be done by the Section authorities as a part of system improvement and enhancing safety measures in the place of the wooden post replaced with a PSC post and stay attached earlier. The appellant is aggrieved at the ‘stay to Post’ erected in his land property without his consent. The appellant has approached the Board authorities for the removal of unauthorized, illegal erection of stay at appellant's property on 19-06-2014 to the electrical post P.P.32 under West Hill Electrical Section, Kozhikode and to get adequate financial compensation due to the difficulties, mischief, damages, obstructions, inconvenience caused to the life and property of the appellant and his family due to above illegal erection of stay even without obtaining any consent or intimation. Since no reply or action was taken by KSEB, the appellant preferred a petition before the CGRF, Kozhikode with a request to shift the ‘stay’ from his property. The CGRF had disposed the Petition vide order dated 09-01-2018, in OP No.116/2017-18, directing as; “The respondent shall shift the LT pole with stay to a location creating least inconvenience to the petitioner, with all safety measures. 2) the respondent shall carry out the shifting work within 30 days of remittance of DW amount. 3) the petitioner can approach the licensee for compensation.” Still not satisfied by the decision of the CGRF, the appellant has filed the Appeal petition before this Forum. In view of the above discussions, the respondent is directed to prepare a fresh estimate for labour charges for the shifting of the stay as proposed by the respondent within 2 weeks from the date of receipt of this order and communicated along with a notice to the appellant.
