Yesterday a closed shop on Exchange road received the electricity bill of 1,63,470 rupees. The last payment of the electricity bill was 131 rupees. The shop is a godown where the owner stores his goods. The units on the electricity meter are nearly 2,000 while on bill units around 30,600 are mentioned.
While talking to the media the owner of the shop said “for the past 3-4 months the shop was closed. Yesterday I opened the shop and saw the bill lying on the floor and I was shocked to see the amount mentioned on the bill. Earlier I used to pay 130-150 rupees for the bill of 2-3 months but now they have sent a bill of such a high amount. The bill has shown the negligence of PDD officials”.
