My electricity bill for Nov 2020 as above, and attached, is wrongfully put at Rs 3,311, whereas it should be Rs 3,079 as per the rates of the previous month.
Bescom has charged me excess of Rs 231 by increasing rates in Nov 2020 in order to pay higher rates to Adani Power Ltd (via its subsidiary Udupi Power Ltd). This is despite the fact that in this year of Covid, when consumers are struggling with lowering incomes and loss of jobs, Adani Power Ltd has made tremendous profits in this year, more than Rs 2,000 cr in the period April-Sep 2020, according to their published accounts.
Bescom, instead of renegotiating with Adani Power Ltd to reduce their rates and thereby passing on benefits to the public, has paid them a 40% higher rate over the last two years and has passed on that burden to us.
I reject this inefficiency, callousness, and corruption by Bescom and demand that they renegotiate rates with Adani Power Ltd and pass on the benefit to the public, including me, thereby removing the increase that they have charged from Nov 2020.
I am therefore paying for power consumed in the above account as per the rates prevailing before Nov 2020, which, as per my calculations comes to Rs 3,079.
