The Anti Power Theft Squad (APTS) of KSEB Ltd. inspected the premises and found that the Multiplication Factor used for arriving at the actual consumption of energy in the premises was ‘20’ instead of ‘30’ and thereby the Licensee sustained a revenue loss. Hence, the respondent issued a short assessment bill amounting to Rs.5,22,087/- for the period from 08/2018 to 05/2020 to compensate the revenue loss. The appellant did not remit the amount and filed a writ petition before the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala vide WP (C) No.1207/2021. The Hon’ble Court directed the appellant to approach Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum within thirty days. Accordingly, the appellant filed a petition before CGRF, and the Forum dismissed the petition. The appellant filed this appeal petition before this Authority. There occurs a mistake in the billing (calculation) due to wrong application of multiplication factor or due to some oversight. The short payment amounts became due only after realization of mistake. Amount of the short assessment bill was never demanded earlier and same cannot be said to be due at any earlier time. The appellant does not dispute the error in the application of multiplication factor occurred to KSEBL in raising his monthly bills. The appellant is bound to pay the charge for the electricity he had consumed. This Authority upheld the decision taken by the CGRF, Central Region, Ernakulam in OP No.20/2021-’22 dated 15-09-2021. Instalment facility shall be granted as per rules.
