The appellant was a defaulter in remitting the current charges since May 2020. The country wide lock down was declared with effect from 22/03/2020 and the shop was totally closed. Then the appellant could not pay the energy charges. The licensee has issued a circular stating that no power connection is to be disconnected due to non payment of current charges due to Covid- 19 pandemic. The power was disconnected on 12/02/2021 due to non payment of regular current charges. On 25/02/2021, the appellant has submitted a letter to licensee to discontinue the power supply. The power connection dismantling notice was issued on 31/12/2021. The dismantling period was considered as 6 months from the date of disconnection and accordingly the balance arrears payable by the appellant after adjusting the security deposit was arrived as Rs. 3,06,101/-. The demand notice was issued for the same. The appellant filed petition to the CGRF and CGRF issued order dated 1/08/2023 stating that the appellant is liable to the current charges till disconnection and also the demand charges for 180 days from 12/02/2021.
