Lucknow: Pramod Kumar Maurya got the shock of his life when the shopkeeper recently received his usual electricity bill, only this time it charged him over Rs 5 crore.

After approaching the power corporation, Maurya realised his bill amount should ideally have been Rs 9,543.

Speaking to News18, Sub Division Officer, engineer Prem Singh Patel said, “We received a complaint regarding the amount in the bill. Due to a clerical error in the fixed demand column, the amount of the bill was inflated. The bill has now been revised as per the actual reading and the revised bill has been generated.”

“The fixed demand was wrongly filled in the column as Rs 67,000, which is wrong. Under normal circumstances, a connection of 11 horsepower can generate a maximum demand of 20. A single household in entire region cannot generate fixed demand of 66000,” added Patel.
