It is not just Telangana but other states also have the same problem. As mentioned by Venkiteswaranji, it was also observed in Kerala where many people have received a higher bill and have complained to the Electricity board. The fault of the board is put on the common man and the board coming and giving vague reasons as if nothing is wrong. Just imagine at such pandemic situations, the electricity board is coming up with bills of the upper slab due to their negligence of not taking the reading on time and the reading went up and crossed their normal slab units. Now as it is their fault, they should have atleast checked the previous readings of the consumers and printed the bill than charging people with higher bills. Many celebrities and activists have come up against it and the board just informs that it is normal and will be taken into account when they receive a bill. It is high time all the freebies of politicians are cancelled and they be made to pay from their pockets like electricity, water, transportation, security, medical, gas, laundry, etc so that that understand the pinch of the common man. Now, as they get everything free on the account of taxpayers, they just blabber for votes and does the same when in power. How many times do the people complain and raise grievances and get a rejection as an answer or they cut the electricity mentioning to pay the bill with reconnection charges?
