“One bill is to the tune of Rs 2 lakh, another bill is Rs 60,000. My father as per official record died in 2010 and today after 12 years I abruptly received these two power bills. I received the power bill of Rs 25,000 for the first time mentioning my name in 12 years,” he said.
He said he approached authorities but nobody is giving heed to his grievances. ‘Where from I can arrange this hefty amount, even though we never enjoy uninterrupted power supply? Those who prepared these bills should be made accountable. Why they sent these bills after 12 years?’ he questioned.
