The appellant with Consumer number 1157380007304 is an industrial consumer under LT IVA tariff of Electrical Section, Okkal and the connected load is 74 kW and contract demand of 82 kVA. The consumption recorded for the month 05/2013 was of the order of 27740 units and the bill issued was for Rs 1,96,819.00 for the door locked period of 03/2013 and 04/2013. Aggrieved against the impugned bill, the appellant filed a complaint before the CGRF, Ernakulam. The Forum directed the respondent to issue the revised bill based on 9980 units/ month for three months. Not satisfied with the decision of CGRF, vide OP No. 145/2017-18 dated 30-06-2018, the appellant has submitted the appeal petition before this Authority. From the analysis done above and the conclusions arrived at, I take the following decision. The respondent has failed to take timely action as specified in the provisions in Electricity Act 2003 and Kerala Electricity Supply Code by which it was required to show the arrear amount in the subsequent spot bills continuously and the respondent also had failed to take the correct meter readings of the consumer. Accordingly, I decide to quash the arrear amount for Rs. 1.60.949/-. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the appellant is found having merits and is allowed. The order of CGRF, Ernakulam in Petition OP No. 145/2017-18 dated 30-06-2018 is set aside. No order on Costs.
