Kalyan July 17:
Chief Engineer of Welfare Circle, MSEDCL, Dinesh Aggarwal has appealed to customers to submit their meter reading photos through the mobile app so that they can pay their electricity bills according to their actual electricity consumption.
Due to restricted area restrictions, electricity bills were issued to nearly 70 percent of consumers in the welfare sector according to meter readings in June. The average bill was charged from the rest of the customers as per the prevailing method. Due to which MSEDCL had to face great resentment. MSEDCL plans to issue electricity bills to 90 percent of its customers in July as per meter reading so that it does not happen again. Aggarwal, Chief Engineer, Kalyan Circle has appealed to consumers in restricted areas to submit meter readings through mobile apps, so that they can get accurate electricity bills as per readings and reduce customer complaints.
