REVIEW PETITION No. 06/2018 IN APPEAL PETITION No. P/029/2018 - Sri. Sadiq P.A., Ernakulam


The appellant representing the Jewel Riverwoods Flat Owners Association, Aluva approached the Electrical Section, Aluva North for shifting two numbers of electrical posts installed in the flat compound to the private road outside the compound for which the flat owners have 50% ownership. But this was objected by the other owners of the private road and the matter was presented before the Additional District Magistrate (ADM) by the respondent. The ADM dismissed the petition after hearing both parties as he found the petition lacks merits. Then the appellant approached the CGRF-CR, Ernakulam by filing a Petition vide No. 88/2017-18 and the CGRF directed the respondent to realign the post and line to the boundary of the property of the appellant after collecting the required charges, vide its order dated 31-03-2018. The respondent has prepared an estimate for shifting the PSC pole and realignment of three phase line on work deposit basis. The work was not done since the shifting will cause damage to the pipelines of the sewage treatment plant of the appellant. Then the appellant has submitted an appeal petition before this Authority which was disposed of with a direction to the respondent to prepare an estimate for the drawing of the LT Aerial Bunched Cable (ABC) in the place of existing three phase four wire overhead conductor for two span of line within 15 days from the date of the order and inform the appellant and if the appellant is willing to accept the proposal and to bear the expenditure, the respondent shall carry out the work within one month without changing the location of the existing electric LT poles, vide Order No. P/29/2018 dated 03-07-2018. Accordingly the respondent has issued an estimate for converting overhead line to ABC amounting to Rs. 23,490/- to be done by the appellant and also directed to remit Rs. 224/- as supervision charges and to submit an undertaking by the appellant. The review appellant is not willing to accept the proposal of ABC and requested to implement the order of CGRF without changing the location of the pole and hence this review petition. In the review petition nothing is pointed out which escaped the notice of this Authority while disposing the appeal petition. The review jurisdiction is limited to rectify a mistake or an error which is apparent on the face of records and it cannot be used as appellate jurisdiction. However, the respondent is free to take action to resolve the grievance of the review appellant by implementing a feasible proposal without any complaints from the rival parties. In this background, this Authority didn’t find any reason to intervene the order already issued.
P/038/2018 - Smt. Radhika Rani, Pandalam.


The appellant, Smt. Radhika Rani, a consumer under Electrical Section, Pandalam with consumer number 2468, had applied to the Assistant Engineer on 20-12-2017, for changing the ownership of the service connection registered in favour of her father, Sri. N.K. Madhavan, to her name. But, due to the objections filed by Sri Madhavan, the service connection was not transferred in the appellant’s name. The appellant approached the respondent seeking for transfer of ownership of the service connection in her name since she submitted all the requisite documents for changing ownership. According to the respondent, the changing of ownership is not registered due to the dispute. There upon the appellant filed a complaint before the CGRF, Kottarakkara, which was dismissed with a dissenting note of one member of the Forum, vide order OP No. 30/2018 dated 17-05-2018. Aggrieved by the order of the CGRF, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority. In view of the discussions, it is concluded that the respondent is directed to change the ownership of the electric connection number 2468 to the appellant on deposit of security amount afresh by the appellant as per Regulation 91(4) (f) and also consider the request for changing consumer category of the tariff observing all other formalities. This shall be done at any rate within 30 days from the date of receipt of this order. It is also made clear that the security deposit remitted by Sri Madhavan can be refunded to him on his application if any as per the prevailing rules. The order of CGRF, Kottarakkara in OP No. 30/2018 dated 17-05-2018 is set aside. No order as to costs.
P/036/2018 - Sri. Aneesh Chandran, Kollam


The appellant has filed the appeal petition, being aggrieved at the inaction of KSEBL to shift the transformer erected in front of his property situated under Electrical Section, Thevalakkara. The appellant alleges that the said transformer was installed without informing him. Due to the installation of transformer, he finds difficulty to enter the property. Though the appellant had approached the officers of KSEBL and District Collector for shifting the transformer, his grievance is not yet settled. The appellant has filed petition before the CGRF, Kottarakkara vide Petition No. OP No. 31/2018 and the CGRF has dismissed it by order dated 14-05-2018, as a case on same subject matter is pending before the District Collector. Still aggrieved by the said order, the appellant has filed the Appeal Petition, before this Authority. In view of the factual position I don’t find any reason to interfere with the findings and decision taken by the CGRF, Kottarakkara in this case and hence the order of CGRF is upheld. The appeal is found devoid of any merits and hence dismissed. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order on costs.
