Four month cumulative electricity bill leaves residents in distress

  • | Thursday | 6th August, 2020

“It is very difficult for the residents, particularly, retired senior citizens to pay large amounts,” said Hitesh Puri, chairman, Chandigarh Residents Association Welfare Federation.

UT administration has sent the cumulative four month electricity bill to the residents of Chandigarh. While people are facing problems to carry out their months expenditure, this sudden move of the electricity department have increased the woes of the residents.

Besides, the department is also not sending hard copies of bills and has reduced the time given for payment, say residents.

“It is very difficult for the residents, particularly, retired senior citizens to pay large amounts,” said Hitesh Puri, chairman, Chandigarh Residents Association Welfare Federation.

“In addition to it, the department is also not giving the benefits of four months’ lower slabs. The electricity charges are levied depending on the slab of consumption. For every month ,there are two slabs, but with four months’ bills being charged in one go, instead of getting benefits of lower slabs four times, residents are only getting it only once. This is disturbing the monthly budgets of tresidents,” added Puri.
