Subject: Re: Fw: What is the value of direction of electricity regulatory authority for electricity companies in the Government of Uttar Pradesh?
If required, the sender of the email may please be informed: That the Commission as per the legal provisions is not empowered to hear consumer grievances .Hence for the resolution of his grievance, he may approach the CGRF (Consumer Grievance Redressal Forum) of his area. The details of the same are available on the UPERC website at the following link –
Hon’ble Sir from the subject of representation even a layman can understand the matter that it relates to function of Electricity Regulatory Commission but aforesaid staffs of commission either really incompetent to understand or mocking in planned way that they are not understanding the contents which is quite common in the system . If the order passed by Uttar Pradesh Regulatory Commission actually followed by the electricity companies , most of the grievances would be automatically redressed.
This is humble request of your applicant to you Hon’ble Sir that It can never be justified to overlook the rights of citizenry by delivering services in arbitrary manner by floating all set up norms. This is sheer mismanagement which is encouraging wrongdoers to reap benefit of loopholes in system and depriving poor citizens from right to justice. Therefore it is need of hour to take concrete steps in order to curb grown anarchy in the system. For this your applicant shall ever pray you Hon’ble Sir.
