Today morning I got the monthly electric bill for the month of May from CESC on my mobile. And I'm shocked to see the billing amount which is Rs. 4480/- and it shows the unit consumption was 519. We never exceed 390 units, that too when we had tanents on the ground floor of our house. And now we don't have any tanents, only 3 people using one floor of the house with nominal usage. Then how come it shows 519 units? I tally the previous bills, it shows the consumption of the unit as below-
04/19- 328, 05/19- 390, 06/19- 359 07/19- 253, 08/19- 187, 09/19- 195, 10/19- 146, 11/19- 109, 12/19- 117, 01/20- 95, 02/20- 167, 03/20- 255, 04/20- 148, 05/20- 519. You can see the huge difference between those previous units and the current one. 519 is way higher than our usage. Utterly Nonsense!
I believe I'm not the only one in Kolkata who's facing this issue. You please tally your previous bills with the current one. You'll get the consumption history on CESC's app or you can ask for the same on CESC'S Facebook page. You'll get to know if you're facing this issue or not.
Secondly, This month's bill is going to be a disaster. They have suppressed units and floated approx bills in past months, so now those remaining units can be billed on higher rates.
Suppose you have used 1000 units in 3 months but they have billed in approx for past months which is below 500 units. Now they will bill the rest units according to new slab which means higher rates will be applied.
Why sould we pay that? We understand you were not able to get the actual meter readings then distribute the units equally in 3 months. There would be huge difference in the bill because of the progressive cost per unit, which would be highly unfair and burdensome on common people in this economic calamity and will choke customers...

This going to be the biggest trap after lockdown. In this current pandemic situation when income of every family has been compromised, CESC Limited is seeking the opportunity to rob people's hard earned money by this trap. They are going to recover all the losses from us. PLEASE BE AWARE. Sign this petition and share with your family and friends. Help me fight with this Monopoly.
