P/026/2018 - Sri. E.V. Varghese, Thrissur


The appellant has filed the appeal petition, being aggrieved at the inaction of KSEBL, Electrical Section, Irinjalakuda No.1 to remove the service connection provided to Sri. Kshithiraj from the post situated in his property. The appellant alleges that the said electric line was drawn from the post erected in his property and the pathway owned by him without obtaining his consent. The appellant has filed petition before the CGRF, Ernakulam vide Petition No. OP No. 90/2017‐18 and the CGRF has dismissed it by order dated 31-03-2018, due to lack of jurisdiction. 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, Ernakulam 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.

The appellant had submitted an application for service connection before the Assistant Engineer, Electrical Section, Dharmadam, Kannur and remitted an amount of Rs.4,70,408/- as ECSC for installation of 100kVA transformer at APA Complex. The grievance of the appellant is that the respondent failed to effect the service connection timely. Aggrieved by this, the appellant approached the CGRF (North), Kozhikode, with his petition dated 29-11-2017 requesting compensation for the delay. The CGRF disallowed the petition and directed the appellant to approach the officer entrusted by the Licensee for compensation for not maintaining the Standards of Performance in energizing the transformer, vide order No. OP 132/2017-18 dated 17th March 2018. Still aggrieved by the decision of the CGRF, the appellant filed this appeal petition before this Authority seeking compensation for the delay in effecting the service connection. From the analysis done and conclusions arrived at, I take the following decision. It is left open to the appellant to approach the authorities of licensee for compensation, if desires so. In the above circumstances the appeal is disposed of as above. The order of CGRF in OP No. 132/2017-18 dated 17-03-2018 is upheld. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly.

P/023/2018 - Sri. Arun R Chandra,n, Ernakulam


The appellant represents M/s Indus Towers Ltd., a company providing passive infra structure service to telecommunication providers. The appellant’s three phase service connection no. 7772 under tariff LT VII A was effected on 23-07-2008 under the jurisdiction of Electrical Section, Edoor. Now the tariff of the appellant is under LT VIF. The appellant is paying the current charges regularly without any dues or delay. But the respondent as per the invoice dated 28-06-2016 directed the appellant to remit an amount of Rs. 29,866/- being the short assessment for the period from 05/2009 to 08/2009 based on the findings of Regional Audit report. Against the short assessment bill, the appellant had approached the CGRF, Kozhikode by filing a petition No. 160/2017-18. The Forum dismissed the petition vide order dated 17-03-2018. Aggrieved against this, the appellant has submitted the appeal petition before this Authority. From the analysis done above and the conclusions arrived at, I take the following decisions. From the conclusions arrived at as detailed above, I am fully convinced that the request of the appellant is reasonable and hence admitted. I decide that the order of the CGRF stands quashed. The short assessment bill amounting to Rs. 29866/- issued to the appellant is set aside. The respondent is directed to reassess the consumption for the period from 24-01-2009 to 27-07- 2009 based on the average consumption of 2255 units bimonthly and to revise the bill accordingly. The respondent shall issue the revised bill to the consumer with fifteen days time (due date) given for making the payment. Having concluded and decided as above it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the Consumer is allowed as ordered and stands disposed of as such. No order on costs.
