An elderly resident of UP’s Hapur district gets an electricity bill of ₹128 cr
A man in Hapur, Uttar Pradesh has received an electricity bill of over ₹128 crore and electricity department has asked the man to pay the exorbitant bill to restore electricity to his home.
Shamim, who lives with his wife Khairu Nisha, said the electricity department has cut off his connection for not clearing the bill.
“No one listen to our pleas, how will we submit that amount? When we went to complaint about it, we were told that they won’t resume our electricity connection unless we pay the bill”.
Shamim’s wife Khairu Nisha said, “We only use fan and light. How can the amount be so high? We are poor, how we will pay such large amount”.
Ram Sharan, an electrical engineer said “This must be happened due to some technical fault. If they provide us the bill we will issue them an updated one after rectifying the technical fault in the system. This is no big deal. Technical faults do take place.
