P.RAMAKRISHNAM RAJU,PRESIDENT -
(1.) THE complainant in
C.D. 83/1997 on the file of the District Forum, Warangal is the appellant.
(2.) HIS case is that he is having an Electricity Service connection to his ˜Ruller since 11 years. In fact, he wanted to opt for 7.5 HP
load but on the suggestion of the opposite parties, he applied for 15
H.P. Hence, in January, 1990, he applied for reduction of the load from
15 HP to 7.5 HP. The third opposite party inspected the premises and found that the complainant was running only 7.5 HP Motor and promised to
carry out the report within three months but curiously supply was
disconnected. When the complainant made a representation, power was
restored on payment of Rs. 4,547/ - on 19.2.1992, but, it was again
disconnected on 30.7.1993 on the ground that he failed to make payment
for the months of June and July, 1993. Hence, the complainant approached
the District Forum for redressal of his grievances.
(3.) THE opposite parties 1 and 3 filed their written version which was adopted by the second opposite party, wherein it is admitted that the
complainant made an application for reduction of load. It is further
asserted that the load was reduced with effect from 30.9.1990 but the
letter was issued on 3.2.1995. It is also pleaded that the complaint is
barred by limitation.
The complainant, besides filing his affidavit, filed Ex. A1 to Ex. A -4. The opposite parties did not adduce any oral evidence.;
