The appellant represents M/s Indus Towers Ltd., a company providing passive infra structure service to telecommunication providers. The consumer number of the appellant’s three phase service connection is 10510 with tariff LT VI F which is coming under the jurisdiction of Electrical Section, Neendoor, Kottayam. The appellant is paying the current charges regularly without any dues or delay. But the respondent as per the invoice dated 31-08-2016 directed the appellant to remit an amount of Rs. 2,14,147/- being the short assessment based on the findings that the meter was faulty for the period from 03-08-2015 to 28-07-2016. An objection against the demand was filed before the Assistant Engineer on 21-09-2016. He rejected the petition without quoting any valid reason or regulations and directed the appellant to remit the short assessed amount. Another short assessment bill dated 27-06-2016 was seen issued by the licensee for the same period of the above short assessment and the bill amount was Rs. 17,414 which pertains the periods of 12/2014, 08/2015 and 09/2015. The appellant had filed an objection against the bill before the Assistant Engineer, Electrical-section Neendoor on 28-07-2016. The service connection was disconnected on 30-07-2016 due to the non-payment of the short assessment bill. Since the electrical connection in the site was inevitable for the operation of the appellant’s mobile tower, appellant had remitted the short assessment bill with protest and the service connection was reconnected on 03-08-2016. Against the short assessment bills, the appellant had approached the Hon’ble CGRF (SR) by filing a petition No. 276/2016. The Forum dismissed the petition due to lack of merit, vide the order dated 28-03-2017. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted this appeal petition before this Authority. From the analysis done and the conclusions arrived at, which are detailed above, I take the following decisions. The order dated 28-03-2017 issued by the CGRF, Kottarakkara, in Petition No. 276/2016 is upheld. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. No order on costs.
