Everytime ny electricity bill is wrongly generated and i have to approach electricity office 5-6 times to get it correct EVERYTIME.
Totally fed up with this.

File complaint & you may get compensation for problems you faced because of operator’s mistake. Further @Roushh may guide.

I can’t help much. I have no idea about this.

@lazyboii Maybe talk to a relative or a friend who is in electricity department. If nothing works then you can try surrendering your existing connection and get a new one.

That’s not cheap and it requires a pretty good amount as initial cost.

Even if he does that he will still need an electricity connection as a backup for rainy and cloudy days.

Initial cost of setup is too high. Moreover it is not feasible in my area.

Even if they generate correct bill after visiting 4-5 times, it would be a great thing. disappointed_relieved

None of my relative is in electricity department. Moreover its not much about visiting there a few times. Its more about the frustrating experience received upon visiting triumph confounded
Thinking to make a video on my next visit and post it over twitter

@Roushh did it & you too can.
If it is 1-2 time it may be technical issue but even after changing meter it is not rectified, Some serious problem is there. Do check with your neighbours regarding bill.

The answer might sound silly but your ground is open. Digital meters log consumption even when the electricity passes through earthing.

Solution:

  • Change wire from meter to home with a 4mm² branded wire.
  • Add an additional meter (costs just 250-500 bucks) before it connects to your house mains box. To find difference between both.
  • get a good electrician to inspect all your boards in each room. Isolate them and verify how much current passes for each room.

The electricity guys will change meter 2-3 time but after that additional charge will be applicable. The fault lies in your house (or neighbours stealing) no matter how often you change just the meter the problem will continue.

@lazyboii If you are sure enough that these instances are faults committed by this government owned electricity company on bill generation, better file a full fledged online complaint narrating your experience of every instance in full detail with bill proofs and your visits to the office of the company,if any on https://pgportal.g...n/ ……………… For sure a resolution will be put up in place within 15-21 days (my estimate) and this time this government company will follow you for causing inconvenience.
