I just wanted to share my personal experience when I happened to visit this office for correction in my electricity bill.
It was S.D.O. office. This office was so pathetic that just to get the bill corrected it took me 2 hrs standing there in the office. There were 3 clerks, out of which 2 were gossiping and 1 seemed to be overloaded. When I asked one of the clerks who were gossiping to take care of my case, he took it up my papers, but started searching for a calculator in whole office. Finally he got frustrated as not finding even a single calculator for him, he put my papers on other clerk's desk.
Calculator was not the only issue, the way that clerk was also talking in a very rough and blunt manner as if he were some minister.
Friends, this is the worst attitude I have seen amongst the govt offices. Though I agree, we cant expect much sophistication from Gov offices, but this was the extreme.
God save India. May Govt offices learn to operate properly.
Correction of address on Bill - DHBVN office, Kanhai Village
It has been months following up with Mr. Khan for correction address printed on the bills received. Everytime you call him or visit him he pretends to be Busy. No escalation matrix for escalating complains. Online Complains on website of no use.
No problem. Its normal for all Garib Janta. You have experienced this with one clerk of DHBVN but I have the experience with one DHBVN officer Mr. Deshwal, SDO at Sector 18. You will not imagine how he treats the customers. He uses dark goggles while seating in his office and treat the customers worst than stray dogs. His tongue, I was surprised to see, how we select an officer?
It is not only the pathetic attitude of juniors but also of seniors like SDO Ms.Rekha Rathi and Executive Engineer Mr. Mahaveer Sing, I have worst experience I happened to visit their Sector 31 Gurgaon Office on Saturday for their continuously showing arrears for a bill which is ont only paid in March 2009 but also brought to their notice twice with the payment proof but bill is still showing arrears and every time it comes with the additional charges. No senior person available on Saturday to even listen to complaints and on making a telephone call to SDO and Ex. En they reply irresponsibly.
Now it is consumer who has to make round to their office for their silly mistakes again and again while staying on leave and west the working day no matter how busy the person is.
I am thinking to go to Consumer Court.
Do you hear Mr.Minister, elections are fast approaching ...
I COMPLAINTED FOR MY FAST RUNNING METER ON 27-MARCH 2009 BUT IN VAIN. AGAIN I COMPLAINED IN MAY 2009 AND CONTACTED MR. J E, WHO WROTE TO LINEMAN TO CHECK THE METER. THE LINEMAN CHECKED THE METER AND WROTE THAT ` meter reading nahi de raha hai' THEN HE AGAIN TOOK THE REPORT AND SAID THAT HE WILL CHECK IT AGAIN . BUT WE GOT IT AFTER ONE AND HALF MONTH HAVING THE SAME EARLIER DATE ` reading ok' TILL THEN WE WERE GETTING THE ASSUMPTED ELECTRICITY BILLS. IN BETWEEN THERE WERE EXCUSES LIKE METER IS FIXED VERY HIGH, UNABLE TO SEE THE READING ETC. THEN WE WERE TOLD THAT METER HAS BEEN STOPPED, FILE A COMPLAINT AND PAY THE REQUIRED FEE AND GET INSTALLED THE NEW METER. THE COMPLAINT WAS FILED ON 22-10-2009.WE TOOK THE PAINS & LUCKILY THE METER WAS CHECKED ON THE VERY SAME DAY, WE SUBMITTED THE REPORT TO JE ON 23-10-2009 HAVING APPLICATION NO.21228793, ACCOUNT NO-kh03/0084, SAN. CATEGORY-DS, SAN.LOAD- 11KW MCO-NO. 30733/09-10. WE WERE ASKED TO COME AFTER 15 DAYS. WHEN WE FOLLOWED THEM WE WERE TOLD TO CONTACT M/S DURGA ELECTRICALS . WE DID NOT GET THE NEW METER TILL DATE BUT GETTING THE BILLS OF RS 6000/- RS 7000/- AS UNITS CONSUMED IN THE HOUSE IS VERY LOW. TO HELP MYSELF I INSTALLED NEW ELECTRIC SUB-METERS .
AS I AM A DIABETIC AND HYPERTENSION PATIENT, I AM UNABLE TO BEAR THE UNNECESSARY TENSION . I CAN'T PAY THE EXCEEDED AMOUNT WHICH IS GIVING ME MORE TENSION.
SIR, IT IS MY HUMBLE REQUEST TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM AT EARLIEST OR GUIDE ME FOR THE GOOD.
DHBVN is the worst service provider, populated by semi-literate, rude, corrupt officials in all ranks. For the last 5 years I have been billed at flat rate when my premises remain locked and electrical fixtures are also not put in. At the whims of clerks, I get billed for 960 units and sometimes 480 units flat without meter reading. Twice I was made to change meters and also pay for the meter they now put outside on the pole ( a marvel of ingenious thinking!). My complaint file weighs 5 kilos. No redressal and made to pay through my nose. Can any one suggest any way out ?
I ENDORSE WHATEVER HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT KHANAI VILLAGE OFFICE OF DHBVN. SOMEONE PAY HEED AND DO THE NEEDFUL TO SET THE SYSTEM RIGHT. ANOTHER SCAM WHICH IS GOING ON IS WITH REGARDS TO METER REPLACEMENTS. HOW COME SO MANY ELECTRICITY METERS OF DIFFERENT MAKE & TYPE OF THE AREA ARE GOING FAULTY REQUIRING REPLACEMENTS WITHOUT BEING TAMPERED.

I am a pensioner and a senior citizen. I have served the countries Armed forces for 33 years and participated in Indo-Pak War - 1971, Sri- Lanka - 1989-1990 and CI Operations in J&K. I always served the country with a pride. Now I am residing in 56 sec which comes under DHBVNL Kanhai Vill. I am ashamed to write about the state of affairs in this office.
My meter develop a snag in 2009, May.I was given a bill of 34, 000/-. I approached Mr DAGAR, SDO with an application. He told me to contact one of the lineman for meter check.my meter was checked and after running around and payment of Rs 7, 000/- my meter was replaced. I have names and documents of the employees involved. It took me more than one year and intervention of senior DHBVNL audit officer from Hissar to settle my case.
On 27 Apr 2012, I was told by meter reader that my meter is not working. I visited SDO office on 30 Apr 2012 with my application and I was asked to submit the same to one of the clerk. After 2 days one meter reader came in my absence and told my wife that meter is working and there is nothing to worry. On my return I found that meter was still not working. I again went to DHBVNL office on 02 May and submitted another application. In the meantime my meter started jumping and showing fresh reading.No one turned up for next 3/4 days.
I again visited the office and contacted the same clerk as SDO is never available.I was asked to meet JE.He gave me two mobile numbers ans asked me to contact those linesmen for fresh meter reading.On 15 May 2012 they came and checked my meter notified reading and gave remarks " Meter Not Working". they also assured me that meter will be replaced if I give Rs 8000/-.
Next day ie 16 May I again went to DHBVNL office with those remarks. I was asked to buy a meter and come.I spoke to linesmen and they told me to obtain a MCO only than they will change meter. When I asked the employees sitting at the counters they immediately asked me which meter I am looking for. it appeared that they are working for Meter dealers. Next 10 minutes one dealer came with a meter and bill and I paid Rs 3800/-. Clerk immediately wrote on my application and asked me to deposit Rs 530/- at the next counter. I approached the dealing clerk and gave him Rs 550/-. He immediately remarked that I am the first person and doing " Bonny" and never returned Rs 20/- to me.
I went inside and obtained MCO. Thereafter deposited connected documents alongwith new meter in JEs office. When asked when will my new meter will be installed ? Reply was minimum 15 days. In the meantime few more consumers who already waited for 15 days came to inquire and were told in negative.
Now I am waiting for new meter to be installed and my old meter is galloping and my heart is sinking. I feel mentally, physically and financially harassed senior citizen. Will some one help me ? I have purposely not given names and details of various DHBVNL staff because I am praying to GOD that better sense prevail and there is a positive outcome.
