Electricity Bill discrepancy
If you have recorded the metre readings at the start and end of your billing cycle, it will be easy to calculate the power usage by yourself. Find out the prevailing per kW rate as per the slab, and you will be able to check Tneb online payment. In case there is an error, or you are unable to understand an amount on your bill, you can reach out to the customer care centres of your provider. If it is UPPCL, find out which division you belong to (such as PUVVNL, PVVNL, MVVNL or DVVNL) and contact the relevant number.
Aside from billing issues, even if there have been power outages, low voltage, power theft, transformer failures or other similar electricity complaints, every consumer is encouraged to bring such concerns to their provider’s notice.
