My name is Amit Shrirang Phadtare, getting the excess electricity bill from last 1.2 years. My consumer no. is [protected] and billing unit / /Circle Code is 0345 / KALAOMBOLI SUB DIVN . I am continuously following up with the electricity office at sector 9 Kamothe. No one is properly responding, asking for the money every time. For checking of electricity power supply they are asking for the money. Even I paid the amount of Rs. 150 twice, as they told this is the rule. They have neither checked the supply not returned back the money. Now they are asking me to change the meter which charge at around Rs. 700, as per rule they told.
I have got the bill of Rs. 3260 in Aug 2013 month. So Let me know, how should I proceed now.
Even for there mistakes, why should i pay the money which won't be in record. Requesting you to kindly look in to this.

Nature Of Complaint - Excess MSEB Bills

We are receiving MSEB bills by an ascending order. The current bill is for R.S. 1030/-. Actually minimum amount bills should come as we are not staying in the premises for which we receive bills, nor we have given the same on any rental basis. First we used to receive minimum bills of R.S. 30/- & gradually the bills started coming by an ascending order. We wish to bring to your kind notice that as we are not staying in the premises, the question of using or consuming units doesn't arive at all. The status of meter is shown as Faulty, which is absolutely absurd. If the premises is unoccupied, how can meter go ahead ? Instead, the meter is shown faulty. In the past, a couple of years back also same thing happened. And now, the repeatition of the same has occured. Our supply was cut down prior to any notice or verifying the fact showing the meter faulty. We had given our non-occupancy certificate issued by our society to the MSEB at that time. Still same thing is repeated by MSEB. The bills will come in an ascending manner, the meter will be shown as faulty & finally supply will be cut. Even though issuing non-occupancy certificate by society, again the meter is shown as faulty. Is this not the way of harrasing & looting customer ? Eventhough paying the minimum bills regularly without any break, MSEB is looting us. How long this will continue & when we will get justice ?
I stay in Pune (vishrantwadi area), I did not get my electricity bill for the month of april 2011 so I waited for around 10 days and after that I went to nearest(pratik nagar) MSEB office and requested them to generate duplicate bill and I paid the amount at that day itself. (bill amount for that month was 250Rs)
But on very next day MSEB staff came and disconnected my elecricity connection saying "Bill pending" .I was not at home at that time, I came at 6 and was shocked to see electricity cut.Immediately(around 6PM) I went to MSEB office but all staff was in hurry to go home, nobody entertained me.
I came home, spend entire night without light and next morning again I went to MSEB office.They charged me 200 Rs to re-connect electicity wire(even it was their mistake)

BILL AMOUNT OF RS. 1500.00 WAS PAID ON 10.01.11.
BUT TILL IT IS NOT UPDATED IN THE SYSTEM.
AND ALSO WITHOUT UNIT DETAILS GIVEN IN THE BILL,
BILL IS GENERATED. WE WANT TO KNOW ON WHAT BASIS BILL IS GENERATED & WHY THE PAID AMOUNT IS NOT UPDATED IN THE SYSTEM.
It seems all the complaints / requests made by the residents of Mumbra-Kausa is landing on deaf ears of the MSEB officials. Inspite of paying monthly dues ontime by the residents here, the officials are showing a very callous attitude & no signs of improvement.
There is a scheduled prompt loadshedding of 8 hrs daily. During the time of power availability also there are frequent long hauls of power outage without any reasons. There seems to be nobody looking into the matter, officials blame the poor recovery of dues & old equipments. Politicians have been of no help & hide from the scenes. Latest assembly election here was fought & won by the local MLA on the promise of solving the problems within 100 days of assuming power. But the promises are yet to be met & now the bubble seems to have been fizzled out.
All businesses are dying a slow death; infrastructure is collapsing & students' education is getting affected but nobody seems to be interested in resolving the problem.
Since the authorities here have not been able to resolve the problem the residents here now are awaiting for some miracle to happen & improve the situation.
Whoever concerned if happens to bump & read this article I sincerely request him / her to look into the problems of Mumbra / Kausa residents and resolve the power outage issue.
Hello to the people of India!! I am sick and tired of these corrupt MSEB officials who want money for everything. I have a 2 BHK flat in evershine city with all the nessesary amenities in my house like ac, fridge, lcd... etc etc. I did not recieve the monthly electricity for the month of May 2010, I was shocked to see my July bill which was 18000 INR, I called MSEB person who is responsible for our area but he only appeared before me after repeted calls and a bribe of Rs 100. He came to my bldg and checked the meter and said something is definately wrong either with the meter or some one is misusing your meter. Hence he suggested that i should contact some chief engineer at Vasai East office and they would look in to the matter. Almost after a week i was able to get through, this so called uneducated, uncivilized, engineer who took 500 rs as bribe and said he will send some technicians to my bldg and they would test the meter, Yesterday finally after these two guys came to my house and asked me to turn on all the applicancec in my house and after that they took some reading on the meter and asked me to visit their office the next day. So today i visited their office and they said that there is no problem with your meter and the bill that I recieved was for two months and the bill amout is correct and he suggested that i pay 18000 to them or they will dissconnect my electrity. PEOPLE READING THIS MIGHT AGREE WITH ME WHEN CALL MSEB GOVERNMENT RECOGNISED THIEVES. WHAT ON EARTH I AM SUPPOSE TO DO WITH THESE CRIMINALS WHO ARE FORCING ME TO PAY 18000 INR AS ELECTRICITY BILL FOR A 2 BHK FLAT...I NEED SERIOUS HELP HERE I AM GOING TO TAKE THIS MATTER TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL AND FILE A CASE AGAINT MSEB FOR HARRASMENT AND VARIOUS OTHER COUNTS UNDER IPC. This is not the first time i have recieved such astronimocal bill, Usually our monthly bill is around 3000 to 4000 rs but suddenly atleast twice a year i would get faulty bills, I have had meter changed twice and also have got the wires changed but still i keep getting such high bills. I DONT REALLY EXPECT AN IMMEDIATE SOLUTION TO THIS BUT I CERTAINLEY WANT A STAY ORDER FROM THE COURT ON THIS BILL...I AM PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN BUT AT THE SAME TIME I FEEL REALLY SORRY FOR THIS COUNTRY.
The power shortage in Vasai is artificially created to please the political business lobby. It is the people of Vasai who elected their MLA to his seat and now he with is ultra corrupt ways is tormenting the communities in Vasai by doing nothing to find a solution to this decades old issue by fabricating the electricity problem
Also it can be noted that the only road which connects Vasai to the Ahemdabad highway has never been attended since ages. This is what the people of Vasai are getting in return for their faithfulness towards their long reigning MLA.
It's time now that the people awaken and rip this monster off his power. Only then Vasai can truly march toward some equitable development.
The street lights in kopar goan area of dombivili is kept lighting during the day time when it is actually not required. many a times these lights are not lit during the nights..
my question is when dombivili faces so much of loadshedding problems then why waste electricity when there is a shortage of it... preserve it and let it be conservatively used ..
