(2.) FEELING aggrieved of the assessment demand raised by the respondent company in respect of the period during which the electricity meter of the appellant remained burnt which was from 22.2.2000 to 8.5.2000 as well as for the period during the meter remained stopped i.e., 10.3.2003 to 3.8.2004, the appellant filed the instant complaint before the District Forum.
(3.) VIDE impugned order dated 21.2.2006, the District Forum dismissed the complaint by accepting the assessment of demand in respect of the aforesaid period as correct as it was calculated on the basis of the average consumption of past six months period of the old meter and past six months of the new meter. Now the main grievance of the appellant against the impugned order is that the District Forum did no consider his pleas that during the period from 22.2.2000 to 8.5.2000 there was no electricity as the respondent did not restore the electricity connection immediately upon receiving the complaint of meter having been burnt by bypassing the meter after ensuring that necessary corrective action at site was taken to avoid future damage nor was the new meter provided by the respondent within prescribed statutory period of 3 days.;
