P/086/2019 Sri. T.R. David, Thiruvananthapuram
The appellant is provided with electrical connection bearing consumer No. 11415131016291 in the name of Sri. T.R. David, under Electrical Section, Beach, Thiruvananthapuram in domestic (1A) tariff. On 11-!2-20i5 the single-phase service connection was converted to three phase. The appellant was issued a short assessment bill amounting to Rs.11,556/- based on the average consumption after the replacement of the faulty energy meter. Since the appellant had not remitted the regular current charge bills, the connection was disconnected by the KSEBL. Aggrieved by this, the appellant filed a writ petition before the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala and as per direction of the Court, the service connection was resumed. The request of the appellant before the CGRF, Kottarakkara is that to cancel the short assessment bill for Rs. 11,556/- and to reimburse the amount of Rs. 25000/- he had expended towards the fees and charges of legal service or adjust the same in his future electricity bills. The Forum disposed of the petition vide order no. 69/2019 dated 24-09-2019 with the decision 1. Short assessment bill for Rs.11,556/- is quashed, stating that, this bill is unsustainable, since, the disputed meter was not tested to prove that, the meter was sluggish or faulty during the period 10/2010 to 08/2011. 2. The petitioner is liable to pay the regular electricity bills issued to him by the respondent. Still not satisfied with the decision of the Forum, the appellant has filed the Appeal petition before this Authority on 13-11-2019. From the analysis done above and the conclusions arrived at, the appellant’s plea to reimburse the amount expended as legal service charges is rejected and this Authority uphold the decision taken by the CGRF, Kottarakkara in OP No.69/2019 dated 24-09-2019. 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.
