P/018/2020 Sri. Babu Mathew Ernakulam
The appellant, Sri Babu Mathew, is a domestic consumer with consumer No. 6476 under Electrical Section, Parakkadavu having connected load of 7234 Watts. The grievance of the appellant is that the respondent issued an additional bill amounting to Rs. 65146/- on 28-01-2019 for consumption of 9476 units for the door lock period from 21-11-2016 to 28-01-2019. The appellant approached the Assistant Engineer with a complaint against the impugned bill and the meter was tested with a parallel meter. But the respondent stated that they have checked the accuracy of the meter in the TMR Division, Angamaly and no variations or discrepancies were noticed during the testing of the existing meter. Being aggrieved against the bill, the appellant filed a petition before the CGRF, Ernakulam with a request to cancel the bill and the Forum disposed of the petition vide order no. OP 51/2019-20 dated 16-12-2019 with direction to the respondent to reassess the disputed bill according to the readings available from the downloaded data as well as from the readings taken. Now the appellant has filed this appeal petition before this Authority with a request to waive the bill amount on 03-03-2020. From the analysis done and the conclusions arrived at, which are detailed above, I take the following decisions. The bill for Rs.65146/- dated 28-01-2019 and the revised bill for Rs.64153/-are quashed. The respondent is directed to revise the bill for the period from 11/2016 to 09/2018 by taking the average of the three-bimonthly consumption from 21/05/2016 to 21/11/2016 i.e., 57 units bi-month. The billing for the period from 01/10/2018 to 01/03/2019 shall be done based on the actual consumption as per the downloaded data. The order of CGRF, Ernakulam in OP No. 51/2019-20 dated 16-12-2019 is set aside. Having concluded and decided as above, it is ordered accordingly. The Appeal Petition filed by the appellant is found having merits and is allowed. No order on costs.
