The respondent shall also reassess the consumption for the disputed period from 08/2018 to 12/2018 by taking the average of the zone wise consumption for 01/2019, 02/2019 and 03/2019. The excess amount collected shall be refunded by adjusting it in appellant’s future bills. Applicable interest, for the excess amount so collected, shall also be refunded to the appellant.
