Area within three days.

was deposited and the petitioner is continuously depositing current
electricity charges, yet his connection was disconnected on 18th September,
2015.
3. On the other hand, learned counsel for respondents points out that
Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum [for short “CGRF”] vide order dated
30th May, 2014 has held that Rs. 8,21,187/- was payable on account of
outstanding dues. He contends that the CGRF held that the issue of misuse
charges pertaining to Rs. 20,23,032/- could not be adjudicated by it for want
of jurisdiction. He, however, points out petitioner was given liberty to
approach the Additional District Magistrate by way of an appeal under
Section 127 of the Electricity Act, 2003.
