Actress Taapsee Pannu on Sunday, June 28, tweeted to complain that there has been an ‘insane rise’ in her electricity bill for the month of June 2020.

Taapsee tweeted, “3 months of lockdown and I wonder what appliance(s) I have newly used or bought in the apartment only last month to have such an insane rise in my electricity bill @Adani_Elec_Mum. What kind of POWER are you charging us for”

She also attached the pictures of the electricity bills, showing how she was charged Rs 36,000 for the month of June whereas, the bill for the month of April was Rs 4,390 and May was Rs 3,850 only.


Within hours, the company in question has extended a clarification in the issue.

A spokesperson of Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited (AEML), said, “We have re-started physical meter reading which was temporarily halted since March because of Covid-19. Bills were generated on the lower side, being an average of preceding three months – that is, December, January and February, which are winter months. Actual consumption in the months of April, May and June is comparatively higher due to seasonal impact (summer) and increased usage (advent of Lockdown/WfH)”

“The bill amount for the past period shall be accounted as per Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) guidelines. The consumers will start receiving the bills based on their actual consumption with appropriate tariff slab benefits,”, he added
