Excess meter reading in digital meter

N.G.K.Murthy 2/16, second cross street, Karpagam gardens, Adyar, 21/04/2014 Chennai-600020

The Divisional Engineeer, TNEB, Chennai.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Excess units in new digital meter
On 06/03/2014 our meter was changed to digital meter .
Our average consumption is less than 500 units for two months ( in the last several years)
This month when the meter reading was taken we were shocked to note that the consumption is 1245 units for two months after the new meter was fixed.
I wonder how this happened and request you to check and make necessary corrections so that I can pay the bill in time. If the meter is faulty please change without any delay.
There are so many reading in the new meter and confusing.
I am also approaching the local Asst. Engineer and informing him.
Pleas take action immediately.

always abnormal request


my number of account is 62020021495 It is in the name of the proprietor We are the renters of this Flat. We are in this Flat only, for about one year.

Each time we want to pay the Bill collector is telling " you consommation must be more than that." Last time they changed even the meter After also he is always telling like this Last time I paid 810Rs/ for the month March 2014. We paid the amount but they did not note the consommation reading.

If they don't note the reading what they think to do for the next time. You know very well the next time if you read from january 2014 it will be more than 500' and so the amount will be noted as high consommation.

We consumed for 1st janu 2014 avec new meter 125 Now they must add for this 810 RS/ for about 310 reading it must be about 425 or 500

They must not reduce the sum But they must reduce the reading. We are two retired persons. We also have the notion of economy and so how you can expect high consommation

The meters are conserved in one locked room by the owner and we couldn't even open The meter is new type So i couldn't bear this type of comments. What is noted in the meter we are paying.

Excess billing on my Electricity bill

Most of the times I am getting excess billing and eb reading is getting recorded double than what I originally used.

This time consumed units is recorded as 900 units but I originally used only 550 units due to this I have to pay 2000rs more than the original bill amount.

Please take a action immediately as I am facing this issue continously even after I complained this to my EB office in Kannagi nagar.

First of all There is no electricity in my home. We paid amount for the line post installation.But till now there is no action or information about it. When we go and ask this to EB office.No response.Sometime they are asking us to pay some amount to officers.This is really ridiculous.Do we have to give the amount for letting them to do their duty?

street post stay wire is lying on within our house premises

dear sir

over 50 years the street light post staywire put inside our plot area is giving difficult to us. over the years my grandfather and now mother is always complaining in nachiyar kovil eb office. No one was considered in this regard. when this post was installed my grand father and his family at ana nallore opposed and asked to put the stay wire installation in the street, the EB person put it inside our plot. Actually they have to put one extra post in the road middle and put the stay wire there itself so that front side post will be free of stay wire. This post is actually at end T- ROAD.

since my grandfather nomore, and my mother is also aged and that stay wire is still inside our house premises giving trouble please remove the stay wire from there and take remedial.
