TNEB billing to be made monthly.
This petition had 20 supporters
The present system of domestic billing every 2 months by TNEB is making the consumer pay more than the actual electricity consumed by them .
rate system adopted by TNEB is slab based and consumption of 500 units is charged at₹1330 whereas 501 unit consumption attracts the higher slab rate and the charge works out to ₹2127.
Because of 2 monthly billing the consumers who are utilising less than 500 units , say 251 units per month are still penalised as the combined 2 monthly bill pushes them to the next higher slab.
This unfair billing not only enriches the coffers of TNEB but also encourages the staff to be lax as they need to take readings once in 2 months instead of twice in 2 months period.
As we all are experiencing undependable power supply , adding insult to injury by overcharging mainly due to the inefficiency in noting meter reading every month,should be avoided by TNEB.
when all other public utility companies are charging on a real time basis, there is no basis for TNEB to follow the old practice which is unfair to the consumers.
