Co-operative Group Housing Societies of Dwarka feel cheated and therefore a compaign is going on in all membership of the Societies to get together and fight against breach of trust and violation of contract with the Societies by electricity authorities.

The Societies were hooked to take a one point connection by offering 15% rebate. Therefore the Societies spent lacs of rupees on infrastructure for it, which was recovered from the members. Since the DERC has reduced the rebate to 10%, the electric expenses of household has drastically gone up. Members are now pursuing the Societies to file a suitable case in the judiciary immediately as the burden is growing every day.

Question: What shall be the bill in this summer ????

Here is a letter from an alert Hony Secretary of a Society to the DERC.

Sub: Electricity Tarrif.

Dear Sir,

DELHI ELECTRICITY REGULATORY COMMISSION

Viniamak Bhawan,Shivalik ,Malviya nagar,New delhi 110017

 

Sir,

 

I am member of sail co-operative group housing society,plot no 35,sector 4, dwarka  and was secy of the society during its construction and finalization of single point HT connection at 11 Kv.

The society spent the entire amount on bldg of s/s,transformers,HT,LT Switchgear cables.energy meters for all the flats,raising of monthly bills,their collection and total operation and maintenance of the entire electrical distribution system.The only responsibility of the DISCOM was to provide electricity at 11 kv and raise the bill for the energy it supplied.How much profit should it make for this job?

As per the agreement made with DESU we were eligible for a discount of 15%of the energy consumed by us.Recently I received the bill of 1472 for consumption of 218 units and this really alarmed ME and I decided to go in details.

My observation are as under:-

1.THE DISCOUNT HAS BEEN REDUCED TO 10% FROM THE ORIGINAL OF 15%.

 

2 TARIFF HAS BEEN revised IN A MANNER ADVERSE TO THE SOCIETY DESPITE THE FACT THAT ENTIRE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DISTRIBUTION,MAINTENANCE. AND BILLING LIES WITH THE SOCIETY.

 

 

The payment which a customer of Discom receiving domestic LT supply at 230 volts or 3-phase 420 volt will be making for this consumption is as under:

 

Units Rate Amount
0.200 3.70 740
200-218 5.50 99
839
Maximum Demand Charge (5KW Max). 100
939
8% Surcharge  75
1014

 

 

The tarrif for C.G.H.S. Ltd is as under:

 

Range Units Rates Amount
60% at 4.80 130.8 4.80 627.80
40% at 6.40 87.2 6.40 558.00
1185.80
Add demand Charges (Avg.)      *1442×20                                                                                152   193.70
1379.50
                                     8% Surcharge  110.40
1489.90

 

* The max. demand of the society in last 12years of its occupation has not been more than 400kW against sanctioned load of 1442Kw. This means the society has been paying maximum demand charges for 1442 kw since last 12 years which may workout to be quite huge amount as per existing tarrif we are paying  Rs. 28,840/ against the proper amount of Rs.8000/ only.

 

Considering the rebate of 10% available against original contracted of 15% for receiving the supply at 11 kv on single point basis,  the Bill comes to Rs. 1379.50 – 137.00+ 0.994(8% Surcharge) = 1342 against Rs.1014 of individual LT customers of Discom. This is despite the facts that society has spent  huge money on transformers, LT & HT Switchgears, Cables,  Substation building & land, energy meters for individual connections, total billing & collections and maintenance  of Substation & installed equipments. The society is paying per unit cost of Rs.6.83 against per unit cost of Rupees.4.65 being paid by individual domestic LT connection holder.

So, it is obvious that the DERC HAS NOT APPLIED ITS MIND WHILE DECIDING OF THE TARRIF AND has fallen in the trap of discom. The society members, most of them working / Retired PSU employees are being fleeced savagely. This anomaly must be resolved soon. The cost per unit for the society should not be more than 4.65 – rebate of 15% i.e. is Rs.3.95/.

 

You are requested to sincerely peruse the matter and restore the charges for single point HT supply to the society as suggested above. I am prepared to render any help to the DERC in this regard.

 

 

Thanking you,

 

 

Yours faithfully,
